The Scottish Government’s drive to cover Scotland in windfarms has reached the school playground bringing new burdens for the taxpayer, figures obtained by the Scottish Conservatives have revealed.

More than two-thirds of Scotland’s councils have spent nearly £1.5 million of public money building wind turbines on school grounds, yet already one in five of these have been decommissioned.

In total, 68 turbines have been built at school sites in recent years, the vast majority of which have been funded by the taxpayer.
