Wind Turbines, Windmolens, Eolienne in Creuse
Wind Turbines seem to be multiplying each year both in France and England.
If you speak to some people they favour solar power over wind. But others say if you live in the UK the best you can expect out of a small panel on a boat is "it will run a fridge in the summer, but only one light bulb in the winter"
In Aigurande there is a commercial building whose large roof is covered in solar panels. In the UK solar panels are being promoted,it is viewed as a growth industry!
Wind Turbines - noisy, eyesore, dangerous,costly only efficient for local distribution/satisfying demand for power.
What is your view on these green energy producers?
Have bought into either one or do you produce your own energy?
