Mortons Lane Wind Farm appreciates the continued support from the local community. With the support of community, renewable energy developments will have a global impact on the reduction of carbon emissions. Together with our partners, we have sought to optimise wind farm operations while minimising the impact to the community and the environment.
During the construction phase, approximately 120 Australian workers contributed to the design, construction and operation of Mortons Lane Wind Farm including employment of 25 to 30 local construction and operation workers.
To date Mortons Lane Wind Farm has contributed over $50,000 to local community organisations including $10,000 towards the undertaking of a benchmark study of the behaviour of Brolga and Southern Bent-wind Bat and the cumulative impact of human activities on these species.
Mortons Lane Wind Farm is proud supporter of the local Woodhouse Fire Brigade. We are committed to working with the local community and CFA to keep the area protected from fire and other emergencies.
Mortons Lane Wind Farm looks forward to continuing its strong relationship with the local community and remains grateful for the ongoing cooperation and support.
