What benefit to Scotland?  

All we ever hear from the renewables industry and the Scottish government is how building wind farms is good for Scotland’s economy; how they boost jobs, bring untold wealth into Scotland. Well how do they explain what’s happening here in the Lammermuir Hills?

Work is about to begin on the extension to the Crystal Rig II wind farm. The 51 turbine site will create one of the largest wind farms in Europe when it’s added to the existing Crystal Rig turbines. The company that owns the wind turbines is Fred Olsen Renewables, a Norwegian company, and they’ve awarded the £16.5 million contract for the infrastructure to a Welsh civil engineering company.
