Two weeks ago, junk mail of the very worst kind was delivered to the homes of the people of Glyncorrwg in the Upper Afan Valley. Most of the residents threw away the offending material. It was from the energy development firm Gamesa, to inform residents of an exhibition in Glyncorrwg about a windfarm to be constructed north east of the Llynfi Valley.
This was at the least misleading, as on attending the exhibition, the turbines were shown to be erected in the Upper Afan Valley community of Croeserw and, once again, Glyncorrwg.
Why are we singled out for wind energy development? We already have a wind farm on Ffynon Oer above the village of Abercregan. It must be the turn of another area of Wales to be burdened with the responsibility of renewable energy.
We have a proud history of providing the energy needs for the nation with the thousands of tons of coal mined here. Why don’t they leave us alone?
