Quote of the day: "It is a rather bizarre situation - we have a wind farm that is shovel ready and good to go, and we've got a local community and local councils who are incredibly supportive of the project and want to see it built now, but we are being hampered by the review process that is going on," RES Australia's development manager Daniel Leahy, on the Federal government review into the Renewable Energy Target.
