Farmer and Wind Activist New South Wales
Charlie Prell is the Chair of Farmers for Climate Action and was the NSW Regional Organiser for the Australian Wind Alliance for five years. He has promoted the roll out of wind farms and the benefits they bring to regional communities for more than 15 years.
He actively supports the concept of benefit sharing, whereby regional communities receive a fair share of the profits generated by renewables and this income is distributed transparently, widely and equitably within those communities.
Charlie is a fourth-generation family farmer from Crookwell in NSW. He is passionate about farming and this passion now includes the need for strong action on climate change in Australia. He is a committed member of the Crookwell community and actively contributes to many local causes.
