Yes 2 Renewbles has long argued that anti-wind farm laws passed by the Baillieu government were out-of-step with the public’s strong support for renewable energy. The government’s August 2011 amendments to the planning scheme has thwarted hundreds of megawatts of wind farm projects in the state–including small-scale projects initiated by the community.

Y2R look forward to seeing the rise of the TWIMBY!
