Right now, the State government is making critically important decisions about the future of wind energy in NSW. It has just released Draft NSW Wind Farm Planning Guidelines for public comment.
We need to make sure NSW does not follow Victoria's lead with restrictions on the growth of this important clean industry. You can show key cabinet members our strong support for wind energy as a good source of clean, renewable energy.
Take action right now. Email Premier Barry O’Farrell and other key government decision makers so we can make sure they stand strong against the anti-wind fear campaign. A copy will also be sent to Deputy Premier and head of the Nationals Andrew Stoner, the Treasurer and the Minister for Planning.
The future of wind in NSW really does hang in the balance but by sending an email today we can hopefully tip it wind energy's way.
Here are some key messages you might like to use:
- NSW stands to gain $10.4 billion of new investment from wind power in coming years. Can we really afford to miss this opportunity?
Wind power creates regional jobs and economic activity, please don't turn your back on regional Australia.
Numerous polls shows high levels of community support for wind power. For most people in NSW, renewable energy just makes sense.
Share your personal reasons for supporting wind power and renewable energy in NSW.
The future of wind in NSW is up in the air, but your action can help make sure it isn't blown off course.
