Boost for wind farms

Fortunately, this anti-wind attitude seems to be losing ground.

Soon small wind turbines will no longer need planning permission, being classified as permitted development.

Now, even the Government have decided that large scale wind power is a good idea - and not before time: http://decc.gov.uk/

Wind is a intermitten source of energy. In a normal year the wind blows sufficiently to generate electricity somewhere aroung the British Isles on 356 days, leaving 9 days a year whith no wind. In Cornwall the same figure is I believe 314 days out of 365, or 86% of the time.

There are several ways to cope with this disadvantage: see Zero Carbon Britain and Without the Hot Air - both in the Resources section.
