Acciona Australia has complained to police about people shooting at its Waubra wind turbines.

The operator said turbines at the Waubra Wind Farm had been shot at within the last two months.

While nobody has been injured, the operator is concerned for the safety of its maintenance workers.

Australian Wind Alliance national coordinator Andrew Bray said it was the first shooting incident he had heard of at wind farms.

"I have heard of incidents where people had vandalised property around the wind farms, but this is a first for me," he said.

Acciona Australia opened the 128 turbine wind farm near the Sunraysia Highway in 2009.

The wind farm is located 35 kilometres north-west of Ballarat in Victoria.

A further statement is expected for Acciona Australia on Sunday.
