Gotta support this to get rid of Coal-ition, totally sold out to transnational coal corporations
Renewable energy has emerged as a mainstream issue in the contested seat of Macedon. Anti-wind farm laws introduced by former Premier Ted Baillieu have cost the region jobs, investment and killed off a community wind farm proposal.
In an electorate profile of Macedon published by The Age, Liberal candidate Donna Petrovich expressed opposition to lifting the Coalition government’s blanket ban on wind farms in the region. Petrovich told The Age:
“A reversion to the ALP policy would mean no planning controls, no two-kilometre buffer, no right of objection – and that is undemocratic. If you look at the way the community reacted here for a proposal for a single-story conference facility in the east paddock of Hanging Rock, I do not think the community would tolerate large-scale wind turbines in this place,” she says.
