People feel wind farms have a positive local impact

More from The Energy Collective...

Whilst reading their fascinating report on 'Local Power', this also caught my eye.

"An English MP wants a new rule to say wind turbines can’t be built within 1.5 miles of homes. This would mean saying goodbye to new wind farms in the English countryside."

Apparently Peter Luff MP - Conservative member of Parliament for Mid Worcestershire, tabled a ten minute rule in February 2009 asking for an "arbitrary 2Km buffer zone between wind turbines and homes in England".

This is despite most surveys showing people feel their local wind farm has had "a positive impact on the area".

You can read the full article here - Even though it was February, I'm sure the repercussions may still be being discussed.
