Subject: Open Letter on Wind Farms & The Renewable Energy Target. August 2014
To all concerned,
Attached is a letter offering insight into negative impacts of the RET on our small community at Cape Bridgewater. Impacts directly caused by the presence of renewable energy production in the form of wind turbines and how those impacts then reverberate to the wider community.
One hundred days until Victoria’s election. I write opposing a RET supporting the growth of wind turbines and adverse renewable energy industry impacts on Australians and rural communities. I ask how you support the needs of isolated rural families like mine coping with illness, coping with inadequate protection and inadequate response to harmful impacts of wind turbines on our lives.
