Drop the fascination with wind energy
Sir, It’s rather odd for the SNP’s Nicola Sturgeon to accuse the UK government of being anti-business when her own administration has blocked both fracking and new nuclear plants, both of which have the potential to create thousands of jobs.
Many people in Scotland are supportive of the subsidy cut. We don’t want to see wind farms covering every part of rural Scotland, especially when we already have enough to meet our renewable energy targets.
They certainly don’t want to be bankrolling them from their electricity bills at a level far above what is justified. The SNP has to drop this fascination with wind energy and instead develop a balanced energy policy, with a focus on sources that are going to keep the lights on.
