The Upper Afan Valley is likely to become The Land of the Wind Turbines.
We already have a wind farm in our area, at Abercregan – 16 turbines, each 300ft high. A planning application from Eco2 has been put in for a wind farm for Glyncorrwg – four turbines 410ft high! The developers are queuing up to make money by using our valley to produce electricity.
It makes me angry when I see so much electricity being wasted every day. This week I drove from Blaengwynfi through Cymmer to Glyncorrwg. I counted 25 street lights on, yet it was midday! These are three villages in the Upper Afan VAlley, the same area being ruined by wind farms to produce electricity!
We must not allow wind farm developers in their greed for money to ruin the beautiful landscapes of the Upper Afan Valley with turbines. We should do everything we can to conserve energy. Common sense is needed.
