Wind farm firms should pay more, says county leader

The leader of Cumbria County Council has called on the Government to stop imposing wind farms on the county or force developers to pay compensation to blighted communities.

Have your say

Well done to Councillor Martin. We need more people standing up for the rights of those who live in the countryside.

The wind industry is a scam that has had its own way for far too long. At last people are realising how bad it is and starting to complain about it. Cllr Martin is setting a great example for us all.

Each turbine gets around £275 thousand pounds per year in subsidy - and we pay for it through ouir electricity bills. If you live near a turbine you will also see your house price fall by 20% or more.

And the wind industry wonder why they are the most hated profession in the UK.

We all know that wind turbines should be located at the nearest point to the user. Therefore wind farms should only be allowed near areas of large towns and cities, not in rural areas where there is not the need for large wind farms.But when will the planners start to think properly?

Perhaps they are the ones who do not want turbines near them and would rather inflict them on the rural communities?

I'd like to introduce some breaking technology that is in testing phase and will be ready for market in a few months that could save an additional 2/3 energy efficiency for wind turbine and solar projects. Please Reply.
