Plaid call for common sense on wind farm  

Plaid Cymru national Assembly candidate for the Rhondda, Jill Evans, is calling for a moratorium on Labour’s “windfarms-first” policy, following the threat of a massive wind-farm near Hirwaun.

Speaking at a press conference held at Mynydd y Rhigos – the highest point in Glamorgan ““ Plaid Cymru Vice President Jill Evans MEP said:

“Plaid Cymru firmly believes that urgent and effective action is needed to tackle climate change. But the top priority must be given to energy conservation and efficiency. Then, renewable energy must come from several sources ““ hydro, solar, bio-mass and wind. Labour’s policy, with its 80% reliance on on-shore wind-farms, is wrong. The result ““ 150 wind turbines in north Glamorgan by 2010 ““ is unacceptable.

“We’re calling for a planning moratorium while a new strategy is developed. And then, local communities should decide their own energy plans, not be dictated to as they are now”.
