EXCLUSIVE: RET Deal Sours After Govt Insists Burning Windmills Is Renewable

A deal to end uncertainty plaguing the renewable energy sector has hit a snag, after senior Coalition figures insisted that burning windmills was ‘renewable’.

The controversial practice, known as “turbine combustive harvesting”, is frowned upon by international energy experts, but favoured by arsonists and conservatives.

“Given the abundance of these things, it’s a no-brainer,” said one Coalition source.

“They pop up on your hill. You burn them down. They pop up again six months later. You burn them down again.

“What’s not renewable about that?”

Earlier, it had seemed that the impasse over clean energy investment had finally broken when the Coalition reluctantly deigned to butcher the renewable energy target by a mere 20%.
