How does renewable energy benefit farmers, and their communities more broadly?

Australia  is one of  the windiest  and sunniest countries  on earth and it has enough  renewable energy resources to power  itself. Renewable energy is cheap, reliable  and the technology is available now.

Renewables  (e.g. wind and  solar power) can  help drought-proof farms  by providing a second, secure  source of income, as this report from the Australian Wind Alliance clearly demonstrated.  It also benefits our regional community by attracting  new investment, creating jobs and providing energy security  and independence.
