THE Waubra wind farm may not be meeting noise compliance.
Weekly Times Now understands Pyrenees Wind Energy Developments submitted a post-construction noise monitoring assessment report in 2010 as required under its planning permit.
More information was requested by the Government and in turn provided by PWED.
But last August PWED is understood to have written to the Department of Planning and Community Development advising it was no longer confident with technical aspects of its testing in the report.
The DPCD is in discussion with the Environment Protection Authority regarding this issue and wind farm noise monitoring and compliance.
Democratic Labor Party senator John Madigan, an outspoken critic of wind farm noise, said companies meeting noise standards benefited from significant Commonwealth subsidies and any non-compliant wind farm should have to repay the subsidies.
"Why is it they are getting public money? Why are they allowed two continue operating?," Senator Madigan said.
"Why are they not subject to the scrutiny that other industries are subject to? It's hypocrisy in the highest order."
Acciona, which runs Waubra wind farm and is the owner of PWED, said it had submitted it’s post construction noise assessment report to the Victorian Government in 2010.
"Acciona’s view is that the report confirmed the Waubra Wind Farm complied with the noise limits specified in the wind farm’s planning permit," senior institutional relations and media manager Lisa Francis said.
