No one has bothered to purchase a wind data report commissioned by the government for the planned wind farm at Is-Sikka l-Bajda, PL environment spokesman Leo Brincat said today.
He said the government’s plans and statements about this project were not being taken seriously, as evidenced by the lack of takers for the €3,000-a-copy report.
Mr Brincat noted that while, last February, Resources Minister George Pullicino claimed that wind turbines were technically viable at Is-Sikka l-Bajda, the government, even after publishing the wind-data report, declared that more studies were needed and the information in the report may not be conclusive.
Malta, Mr Brincat said, was being ridiculed in the eyes of the world and such delays under the pretext of studies were denying the people the use of this alternative source of energy while extra millions were spend on oil imports.
