Wind power: There are currently about 3,500 onshore wind turbines already constructed in Britain. However, there are plans to increase this number to nearer 10,000. The more appropriate sites for these wind farms have already been used up and the search is on for more sites, which obviously are going to be less acceptable to people who live close by.
English counties are coming to the realisation that enough is enough, and two Scottish councils have already called for a six-month moratorium on wind-farm applications in response to the number of “inappropriate” bids.
This is a problem for the Scottish Government, as they have nailed their colours to the mast, stating that they want renewables to account for 100% equivalent of energy supply. So, Fergus Ewing, the Energy Minister, has ordered councils to identify more land where turbines can be built.
This is rather like the IRA man asking his victim to choose his left or right kneecap. It’s an open invitation to wind companies the world over to come and industrialise Scottish wild land
