Stand with BEAM and support wind energy!

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal has just approved the Cherry Tree Range wind farm proposed for Trawool in Central Victoria.

The project’s approval would not have been possible without a supportive community.

The local environment group BEAM took a leadership role after known anti-wind farm groups came to town with a fear campaign about wind farms and health. These anti-wind farm campaigners put jobs, drought-proof income, and climate action at risk.

BEAM stood up for a wind farm in their region with support from Yes 2 Renewables. Sign your name to stand with them!

We welcome VCAT's decision to approve the Cherry Tree Range wind farm and stand with BEAM-Mitchell Environment Group in support of the project. The wind farm will create jobs and drought-proof income for their community, and help our state address the threat of climate change.
