Victim: Jan Perry

Jan Perry talks about her ‘living hell’ near the Hepburn Community Wind farm

Jan Perry’s home is in Leonard’s Hill, 600-700 metres from the Hepburn Community Wind Farm in Victoria.



I’m fighting for my well-being and for my home. The turbines had been turning for 2 days and I didn’t realise that. And it was the first two nights that the turbines were operating – I felt like I was sitting in an aeroplane. It was really strange – I was getting earache. I’d then mentioned it to a neighbour – and they said well the turbines have started up.

And from then on it’s got worse. I’ve got constant earache now. Night-time is the main problem time because that’s when I need to rest. It’s a pulsating noise and it’s like living at an airport.

It distresses me when I leave Dalsford to come home – and I’ve got to the stage now that I’m looking towards the turbines to see if they’re turning or not – wondering if I am going to have to go back to that hell – living hell.

I think the residents of Leonards Hill should not have to be victims to the greed of shareholders with their own agenda. It’s our life that they are taking away from us.

Our land values have dropped at least 35%. No one would want to buy my home and live under these turbines and have the noise and landscape ruined – they just wouldn’t live here.

In fact all of us, we are suffering: we cannot sell, we can’t move away. We are stuck.

No amount of money would be able to pay me enough to leave my home and what I have gone through over the last six years. They need to be turned off and gone and taken away.

We are a group of citizens concerned about the rapid spread of industrial wind power generation installations across Australia.


  1. We have to start imprisoning government officials, who are allowing this to happen!

  2. You wouldn’t do this to your worst enemy or dog. When is the Australian Goverment going to wake up.

    We will have to put the heavy weights on the Goverment in 10 days time – June 18, see you there.
