Ararat Wind Farm Gets Green Light!
Approval has been granted to build 75 wind turbines which will be able to power
135000 zero homes with reliable dispatchable energy. These ugly behemoths disfigure the countryside while providing no real GHG emission reduction in practice due to the systemic problems of grid integration , As well as this consumers will have to pay much higher rates for energy to pay the huge subsidies for this "free" power source all for the warm fuzzy feeling of doing something ostensibly green.
