Apologies if we have been a little quiet recently but we are all waiting for the announcements, or not, from Amanda Rudd and the DECC and how cuts will effect wind farms in Scotland. There are a fair level of concerns after the DECC told the Chair of the Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee that cuts on NEW subsidies would be brought in in 2020. They did however confirm that it would effect Scotland too. Now five years away all plans in fruition, some 3000 turbines, could be approved and built. That would be a disaster not least because that wording suggests that only new subsidies would be frozen but existing payments would continue.

I put these statements through a new piece of hi-tec equipment that I have acquired and this was the result.

About Dougal Quixote

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.

    Until Cameron goes back on his pledge to make Britain (presumably including Scotland) the greenest country in Europe, it looks like those 3000 turbines will be approved and built, and subsidised by us.
