A move to cut subsidy for onshore wind farms has been welcomed by Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale MP David Mundell.

The UK Government is to reduce funding levels for new turbines on land, while giving more backing to offshore projects. Ministers say they will cut support for onshore wind and solar energy, but give more backing to offshore wind power.

The price producers are promised for onshore wind power and solar energy will be cut from 2015, while the amount paid for offshore wind power will be increased.

And these proposals have been welcomed by Mr Mundell, who has long objected to the large numbers of wind farms in his rural constituency.
