Hepburn Wind continues to make us proud

HEPBURN Wind is continuing to cement itself as a mover and shaker in the renewable energy field, both nationally and on the world stage.

The Daylesford-based co-operative opened its wind farm at Leonards Hill at the weekend so people could watch renowned Melbourne artist Ghostpatrol (David Booth) paint a mural on one of the turbines.

The artwork is a first for an  Australian wind turbine and just another example of Hepburn Wind’s good work.

Hepburn Wind is Australia’s first community-owned wind farm and was recently honoured in Canberra for doing Australia proud by winning the World Wind Energy Award.

What a fantastic achievement.

More than 300 people visited the wind farm on Sunday as part of the statewide Sustainable Living Festival.

The positive community response highlights the ever increasing awareness of our need to embrace renewable energy and more sustainable living practices into the future.

Hepburn Wind’s supporters can be proud to know similar projects are being taken up around Victoria with the co-operative offering moral support and advice for groups in Castlemaine and Woodend.

So when you get a chance to look at the new artwork at the Leonards Hill wind farm, you can be proud to know Hepburn Wind is doing the Hepburn Shire proud.
