Large scale wind farms on land not justified, Government says  

The construction of a large scale wind farm on land would not be justified when considering its impact and the electricity generated, Minister Ninu Zammit said.

In reply to a parliamentary question by Opposition MP Charles Mangion on Tuesday, the Minister for Resources and Infrastructure tabled the report compiled by Mott MacDonald on ‘Renewable Energy in Malta’.

Minister Zammit said the report studied a number of sites on land for the generation of electricity from wind and the impacts associated with such wind farms.

When considering such impacts, and in view of the fact that such a wind farm would only generate 1.06 per cent of electricity consumption in 2010, the Government concluded that the construction of large scale wind farms on land would not be justified.
