Tassie wind farm back on track

Posted on 21/10/2008  

A $180 million wind farm at Waterloo in Tasmania - first approved by local councils in 2005 - is back on track with developers hoping to start construction early in 2009. A spokesperson for developer Roaring40s says it’s the optimal time to implement green energy projects given the Federal Government’s emphasis on renewal energies. While local residents have aired concerns regarding increased traffic, lighting of turbines and land heritage issues, the developer is confident the pay-offs, including employment opportunities and economic spin-offs, will be worthwhile.
