Major UK turbine plan gets go ahead


Love it or hate it, chances are you’ll be seeing it everywhere soon. No, not Santa’s grinning face, although chances are you will be seeing that too – Greenbang is talking wind turbines.

The Beeb says:

All UK homes could be powered by offshore wind farms by 2020 as part of the fight against climate change, under plans being unveiled by John Hutton.

Up to 7,000 turbines, two per mile of coast, could be installed to boost wind produced energy 60-fold by 2020.
