Powys Supports Wind Energy

409 Signatures Goal: 500

We, the undersigned, noting the urgency for action on climate change, and the benefits to economy, community and environment from onshore wind, support the five wind farm applications that will form the basis of a Public Inquiry due to begin in Welshpool in June 2013. We believe that wind energy will bring a much needed economic boost to Powys. The wind farms will provide jobs for local people and will give young people an opportunity to gain skills that will enable them to stay in the area rather than look for jobs elsewhere. The community investment funds coming from the wind farms will help to make Powys more sustainable and resilient; the hosting of wind turbines will help local farmers to diversify; and the capital investment will provide great opportunities for local businesses.

For every megawatt of electricity produced from Wind Turbines it equates to 2,600 fewer tons of CO2 being released into the atmosphere. This can only be good news.

If you are fed up with the negative campaign against Wind Power please sign the petition.

Thank you all so much for signing and all the comments which are so relevant to us here in Powys and the whole of the UK for a sustainable energy future.

    Finally someone positive about wind. Onshore wind is far more cost effective than offshore, and is turnaround is quick. It's quick, clean and lasts for ever. Whether climate change is out of control already, or not - we need to exploit this free energy now, whilst the fossil fuels gradually run out. Think ahead. Thanks for this petition - I know a lot of people feel the same, but the coverage is all about the 'anti's'.
