Call for a Strategic Plan on Renewable Energy

The VFF is supportive of farming being able to take proactive actions on farm to generate their energy needs where this has little impact on farming or neighbours.

VFF also understands that society needs affordable and reliable energy and not everyone can generate on site.

The VFF’s renewable energy position calls for the state to create a strategic plan for renewable energy – including areas where it may not be suited (such as irrigated farm land); how to consider the loss of productive land from both the ‘footprint’ but any transmission system; how to improve distribution systems (upgrade SWER lines) and a simple formula for ‘no permit’, permit, or requires rezoning.
