Scotlands wind turbines energy taxed to death

Scottish Power has announced it will place orders for wind turbines with steel towers at Machrihanish (on the Kintyre peninsula, West Scotland)to help propel its own 300m windfarm expansion plan.

The Danish firm Vestas confirmed along with the Scottish 'executive' that renewable energy projects in Scotland now were producing more than one million megawatt hours of electricity, enough to meet the annual needs of around 70,000 domestic consumers.

What a shame they are taxed as polluters under Londons taxes
