Company to consult community on Burnett wind farms

24 May 2012

An energy company says locals will be able to have a say on the location of wind turbines in Queensland's South Burnett. AGL Energy wants to generate 350 MWs of power through 115 turbines at Cooranga North, south-west of Kingaroy. AGL Energy spokesman Scott Thomas says a consultative committee will be established to deal with residents' concerns. "The development at these early stages still has flexibility in the final layout", he said. "What we'll be looking to do is work through-with the community consultative committee-ways to find reasonable outcomes to make the project viable for everyone". Interim committee members will be announced today.
