Our country may be closer to reaching the European Union’s renewable energy target by 2020 but at what price?
What was once beautiful countryside is utterly ruined – from the hills near Oroklini all the way to Nicosia the once stunning hilly scenery is now destroyed – It’s as if there is a monstrous mobile phone tower on every acre, with spinning blades atop.
Wind Energy may help add more power to the grid, but these monstrosities are putting off tourists by creating an ugly landscape.
Is there any chance of taking these eye-sores down?
