They were interesting to look at the first few times we drove past now we do not even notice them.
The planet needs protecting and these generators need installing as soon as possible, everywhere.
Brittany is a beautiful place with turbines, I live in Poole which is a beatiful place near the New Forest which is another beatiful place and I would NOT object to turbines in either.
I think the objectors to renewable progress should have restrictions put on their personal energy usage.
I live in a property with solar PV , solar thermal and an air source heat pump, virtually every thing we own is "A" rated or low energy ,not only to help the planet , it also helps our finances.
I like the idea of restrictions for the ones who are against everything. Give them choices: We build a coal power station, a nuclear power station, a burning rubbish power station or turbines. You don't like any of them, well fine, we will cut your electricity let us say 2 days a week.
