When Offshore Mega turbines start walking up the beach!

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?

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.
