Farmers Get Wind

According to the Courier Mail a proposed 252-turbine windfarm in Queensland's South Burnett region will be the biggest in the southern hemisphere, and reduce greenhouse gases by up to 2.2 million tonnes per year.

Producing enough power for 320,000 homes, the turbines will be located on grazing properties, with the farmers receiving $10,000 per year per turbine for the use of the land.
