Do wind farms really benefit us?
OVER the last week no fewer than six different ships have arrived in the
Clyde bringing in the towers and blades for onshore wind turbines to be
erected in Scotland. These components have come from factories in Italy,
Spain and Turkey.
Wind farms in Scotland are increasingly being developed by foreign
companies, many more are now owned by foreign investors who value the
subsidies and profits, and all the turbines in these farms have been
manufactured outside of the country. Other than helping meet political and
green targets, can anyone explain what benefit the so-called wind farm
industry actually brings to Scotland?
