Ghostpatrol’s mural is set to become one of 2013’s most notable public artworks.

Ghostpatrol said it was important to spread the message of the reality of sustainable power.

“The turbines stand as visual reminders of where power comes from and our responsibility to the environment,” he said.

“It was easy to add a positive spirit to the turbines, which are already beautiful.

“I’m proud to be involved in such a great project and be part of spreading the word about action on energy.”

Ms Lane said it was great to see the personality Ghostpatrol had given Gale.

“The artwork is of a girl pointing up at the turbine,” she said.

“It was all about giving Gale, giving the turbine, a personality.

Hepburn Wind, Australia’s first community-owned wind farm, was recently honoured in Canberra, winning the World Wind Energy Award.

The Hepburn Wind co-operative is based in Daylesford and is owned by almost 2000 members.

The co-operative established the Hepburn Wind Community Fund, which will provide more than $1 million in community building grants over the next 25 years and has already helped 23 community groups in the Hepburn Shire.

Hepburn Wind chairman Simon Holmes a Court recently told The Advocate the community energy model was getting a foothold in Australia.

“One of the exciting things is that we’ve been giving a lot of moral support and advice for the Castlemaine group, and also to Woodend, because they’re doing similar projects,” he said.

“The idea is spreading through Victoria.”
