I recently had an opportunity to travel through the hills to the south of Edinburgh. I was very impressed by the number of wind turbines along either side of the A68.
I don’t understand why some people find them so objectionable. They are obviously more visible than the nearby nuclear power station but they won’t leave a legacy of waste for millenia. And the sheep don’t seem to mind.
The biggest problem with remote upland wind farms is getting the energy to where it is needed most: the cities. This is why the hills to the south of Edinburgh (and Glasgow too) make an ideal location with relatively short connections to the infrastructure that is already in place.
The pictured wind farm is Dun Law which provides the equivalent of the electricity required for 25,000 homes.
