EPP 209 – Mr and Mrs J W Jones

This is to register our views on the massive Wind Farms planned for this area.   This would be a complete massacre of our beautiful countryside for very little reward - wind turbines cost massive amounts of money to build and maintain for very small returns.  Money would be better spent on hydro electric schemes and other more productive ideas.  Even small river turbines could produce surprising amounts of power for relatively little cost and there must be ways of harnessing the power of the water released from the many dams as well.   Please listen to the people of the area before blanketing the area in turbines and pylons.  Mr. and Mrs. J.
