Now is the time for a Fremantle Wind Farm
Paul Llewellyn, former South West Greens MP and Adele at the Albany Wind Farm on 18 February 2010.
The time has come for a wind farm off Rous Head at the Port of Fremantle. With 6 turbines sitting on sea walls, we could produce enough power to supply 4,500 houses in Fremantle and reduce our greenhouse gases by 43,500 tonnes a year. We could displace some 50,000 tonnes of coal and gas from electricity generation, and accordingly produce significant environmental benefits. In the decades to follow, our children will thank us for investing in renewable energy today. There are similar urban wind farms at the Port of Amsterdam and the Port of Liverpool.”
