Wind farm site proposed  

Credit:  www.channelonline.tv ~~

The north west coast of Guernsey has been identified as the most likely location to build a wind farm.

A special government group is currently looking at the possibility of installing wind turbines there as part of a move towards greener energy.

The “Renewable Energy Team” (RET) is carrying out an experiment at Chouet to measure wind speeds.

Robert Sillars, Chairman of RET said: “There are a number of positive reasons why a local wind farm might be developed, such as it being more advanced technology than other renewable, and Guernsey’s commitment to renewable energy generation and energy security, but there are also a number of environmental and stakeholder concerns to be taken into account.”

RET warn the wind farm would have to be built no further than three miles out to sea and would damage the view.
