Wind Farms in the Canberra Region?

By fraser12 15 December 2005 22

I live on Tarago Road and we have recently had a couple of people out from Renewable Power Ventures Pty Ltd. They told us that the proposal is for around 60 turbines from Taylor’s creek road and back towards Bungendore on the hills. Now the problem we have is that we will be only 2.5kms from the last 25 or so. And only 1.5 kms from the sub station. And to make matters worse is that our block of 40 acres is mainly on the hill directly opposite the last 25 towers, and our view just happens to be the hills that the turbines will be on. So we will be able to see them from our deck, dinning room, lounge room; drive way, and the paddocks. So really we are not going to be able to get away from them.

Now they’re not that ugly, but to have them in our site 24/7 is just a bit much to take. I have also talked to a real estate agent that sells around this area, and he didn’t know anything about it.

Were not against wind farms, but I believe that they should be in more of a remote area. And also were are doing our part for the environment as we are only on Solar power, so we are not connected to mains.

Does anyone have any further information on this subject?

Plug the excercycles at the gym into the grid.

And for Thumper, make people who eat McDonalds do at least 20 revolutions on the bike before they can eat it.

Barring that we could have a million hamsters on a million little wheels generating power…
