Tale of two wind farms

Offshore wind farm

A new report suggests that Australia has some of the world’s best offshore wind assets, in fact enough to replace our aging fleet of coal fired power plants. Centred in this new opportunity is the Latrobe Valley, home of Victoria’s remaining brown coal reserves and power generation. It’s never been as simple as switch off coal and switch on renewables, and today we will be joined by Pat Simons from Friends of the Earth’s Yes2Renewables campaign to hear about some of the obstacles, and some of the opportunities that wind powered energy generation has for the community. Yes it is the tale of two wind farm projects, here on Dirt Radio!
