Highland schools wind turbines turned off  

Credit:  BBC News, www.bbc.co.uk 9 May 2012 ~~

Wind turbines at 16 schools in the Highlands have been turned off amid concerns about the planning and installation of the devices.

Highland Council commissioned checks of where turbines were sited after worries were raised by councillors and members of the public.

The local authority said the operation of the turbines would be suspended until risks were fully assessed.

Three secondary schools and 13 primaries are involved.

The local authority said the turbines were important to reducing carbon emissions and it planned to continue the roll out of the machines.

The academies are Culloden, Dornoch and Gairloch.

Primary schools involved are Bower, Crossroads, Castletown, Pultneytown, North, South, Scoraig, Inver, Rosehall, Stoer, Acharacle, Holm and Eigg.
