It’s fallen down, AGAIN!

A PUBLICLY funded, £37,000 wind turbine sited next to a community hall in north-west Sutherland has crashed to the ground for a second time.

The tower of the 15-metre high turbine at remote Rhue Stoer Hall, north of Lochinver, snapped in two last Thursday, sending the gear box housing and blades tumbling to the ground. It is the second such structural failure in two years.

The turbine was reported to be “askew” and making a “funny noise” just prior to the crash.

The independent members of the Highland Council’s call for the Carbon ‘crazies’ Clever department to be axed in pursuit of the £54 million savings required of the Council was defeated this week although the sacking of twelve road men and the disposal of twelve gritting lorries was approved. Can we call on the Council Chief and his SNP buddies to shoulder their shovels and clear the roads on our next heavy snow fall? I can be certain that will never happen!

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.
