North Ayreshire Council has just approved the siting of three massive Off-shore mega turbines ON-SHORE at Hunterston. These behemoths are three times the size of on-shore turbines with an output as high as 6mw. This is a crazy precedent and should have been refused at any cost. SSE call it a “test site”. What a test that they can install these monsters all around Loch Ness at their sites at Fairburn, West Glenmoriston and Stronelairg. Is this why SSE seemed so willing to reduce the numbers? With test sites all around the coast why another? Clydeport Hunterston Yes this is a highly industrialised port but there are local residents. How will they manage?

Wind V. Coal
Quote of the Decade
"The trouble with wind farms is that they have a very large spatial footprint for a piddling little bit of electricity. You would need 8oo turbines to produce the output of a coal-fired power station."
