Why we are doing what we are doing

This site has been created because we are concerned about inappropriately large wind turbines.

We are not anti-wind or anti-renewables and we haven't objected to the smaller developments in the area. However, recently there have been projects at various stages of planning that are three and four times the size of any of the turbines that are currently in the area. Unlike the existing Turbine projects, these benefit the few, to the massive detriment of the community.

Lessons to learn from other countries

Denmark (population 5.3 million) has over 6,000 turbines that produced electricity equal to 19% of what the country used in 2002, only 7% of this energy is used, the remaining 12% is wasted or exported at a very low cost.
Wind turbines are so expensive that Holland recently became the first country in Europe to abandon their EU renewable energy target announcing that it’s to slash it’s annual subsidies by billions of euros.
