Plans for a wind farm on mountains north of Swansea have been attacked as “a major scam” by a city councillor.Ioan Richard, who represents the Mawr ward on the council, has hit out at subsidies paid to wind farms.
He says the project, which he estimates will cost £80 million, will receive £110 million income over 20 years at today’s figures.
“The Renewable Energy Subsidy will be £236 million from the general public who do not want this ugly scam,” said Councillor Richard.
“After 20 years the turbines will be scrap – but who is laughing all the way to the bank?
“These figures have all been verified at today’s rates as a major scam.
“It’s high time you, the general public, sat up and realised the folly of it at your expense,” he added.
