Yes 2 Renewables’ Wind Farm Tour – July 11

589041-wind-turbinesHave you ever wanted to see a wind turbine up close?… How about having a yarn with a wind farmer?

Well here’s your chance: Yes 2 Renewables are pleased to announce a tour of the Waubra wind farm on Saturday, 11 July.

Wind energy has grown in leaps and bounds in Australia since the early 2000s. The clean energy source creates good manufacturing jobs in places such as Portland; provides drought-proof income for farming communities; and helps us tackle global warming by outcompeting polluting power sources such as coal.

Wind farmer Doug Hobson will kindly give Yes 2 Renewables supporters a tour of the wind turbines on his property. Those who attend will have an up-close look at wind turbines, and get a have a chance to hear from Doug about the benefits of wind energy.

WHEN: July 11, 2015 at 1pm – 3pm

WHERE: Waubra wind farm, Waubra, Victoria 3352 (Google map and directions)

CONTACT: Leigh Ewbank · leigh.ewbank@foe.org.au · 0406 316 176

RSVP: Please RSVP here. (Let your friends know about the tour on Facebook).

Spaces are strictly limited to 30 people, so please make sure you RSVP as soon as possible.

(NOTE: There may be a minibus from a central location in Melbourne depending on demand. Please email Yes 2 Renewables coordinator Leigh Ewbank if you’d like to hitch a ride).

TAKE ACTION:

  • Wind energy is under attack. Not only from Prime Minister Tony Abbott, but a hostile senate inquiry into wind farms. Sign our petition calling Senators John Madigan and David Leyonhjelm to run a fair inquiry into wind energy.
  • Support our campaign by getting involved or making a donation.
  • Connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.

  2. maybe send a invite to the families in SA with the turbines on their land? or better still why don’t you stump up a few extra dollars and go visit them?

    1. I wonder if Blair’s favourite Simon Chapman has read this. I thought it was only ‘jealous’ people that weren’t getting paid that suffered the ‘nocebo effect’.

      1. To quote Simon (Windfarm) Chapman “wind turbine syndrome” is an unrecognised disease. ………………………… often confounded by envy from rent-seeking neighbours living on land unsuitable for turbines” Mr and Mrs Gare are very well compensated, what is the explanation Chapman?

  3. Even if he did,Gerard, he would come up with same lame excuse as to what the Gares are suffering from, it certainly wouldn’t be wind turbines.

    This mob are fast running out of options!
