82% of section 36 Wind Farms approved- NO! 93% since 2009

The Scottish Government has admitted that 82% of Section 36 (over 50mw) wind farms

Yes, This is a real photo, not a photomontage

have been approved since 2007, but that is only half the story. Since Mr. Salmond’s promise of 100% renewable energy (2009) the figure is 93% approved. In fact only 7%(1) of wind farms have been refused in the large scale wind farms. Now that is an open door policy to wind if ever I saw one!

Under s36 of The Electricity Act, Scottish Ministers have determined 35 wind farm applications since 2007. Of these, 29 applications were consented and 6 were rejected.


This list is as a follows.
