A new wind farm was opened in Victoria as the Andrews government prepares to release its Renewable Energy Action Plan, which will set Renewable Energy Targets for the state.

Friends of the Earth welcomed the opening of the wind farm, which was built thanks to the ACT’s Renewable Energy Target of 90 percent by 2020.

“The Coonooer Bridge wind farm is a shining example of how state and territory governments can lead on renewables,” said Leigh Ewbank, Friends of the Earth’s renewable energy spokesperson.

“The ACT’s renewable energy scheme is bringing jobs and investment to Victoria at a time when the sector is still recovering from Federal government attacks.”
