Australia is about to lose a lot of money because they are going to stop the continuation of wind farms. That is not a sustainable act. Australia was on their way on becoming a cleaner place and reducing their carbon footprint but now the government is stopping it. Australia is not the only country being affected in the cuts or renewable resource. Germany, Spain and Italy are just some countries making cuts in their renewable energy source. In Australia Wind energy is the second most used renewable energy source after Hydropower. It provides a quarter of its countries energy and 4% of its country energy demands. Acciona ( The largest renewable energy firm) is freezing 750 million dollars because of the government wanting to stop the wind farms.
