Letter to the Lincolnshire press - another bid to build a huge windfarm next to the Louth Canal has been dismissed by the Secretary of State

To The Editor,
Dear Sir,
I see in the local press that another bid to build a huge windfarm next to the Louth Canal has been dismissed by the Secretary of State.
East Lindsey Council had already rejected the proposals and the Secretary of State has now dismissed an appeal by the developers.
The council has said: 'The appeal was dismissed because the harm to the character and appearance of the landscape, the adverse visual impacts, the harm to the nationally listed Thoresby Warehouse and the harm to other heritage assets significantly and demonstrably outweighed the public benefits of providing renewable energy on this site.'
Of course, the council could have added that these wind farms are unreliable and a huge waste of resources and money.

Their location often both irks and worries local people and of course, without huge subsidies it is doubtful many would have been built in the first place. Indeed, the EU push for greater, tax-payer subsidies will simply make rich investors even richer, leaving us with even more uneconomic and unreliable wind farms.
After all, one wonders what the comparison is between the total power generated throughout their life span and the total power used in their construction and subsequent maintenance!
Yours faithfully,
Jonathan Bullock, MEP for Lincolnshire and UKIP spokesman on energy
