Wind energy company calls for inquiry into wind energy and health

Pacific Hydro supports calls for wind farm health probe June 14, 2012  A wind energy company, Pacific Hydro, has backed calls for a study into the health effects of wind farms and power generation. The company’s general manager, Lane Crockett, backed the suggestion during a meeting on wind farms in Portland on Tuesday.

A Senate inquiry last year recommended the Government should fund a health assessment. Mr Crockett says the Government should launch a broad-ranging inquiry into the claimed health problems caused by power generation.
“If you really want to have a broad conversation about what forms of power generation are appropriate to power Australia, then you should do a health review of all forms of power generation,” he said.
