What the Senator has said is not unreasonable. I will carefully consider what he has said. I have looked at the models adopted in other countries. It is not just in the UK but in northern Europe where a regime has been developed whereby communities, local groups, sometimes co-operatives have equity in wind farms comprised of one or two turbines and, in some cases, larger enterprises. The Senator has made a very helpful and useful point which I shall carefully consider.
