Wind company “not generous” to local area 

Credit:  www.largsandmillportnews.com 30 May 2012 ~~

A Largs campaigner against wind farms has accused local operator RES of not being generous to the local communities.

Mr Freddie Moran, in a letter to the Largs & Millport Weekly News, stated:

“We are getting nothing from their “generosity”, except being ripped off by their great “wind scam”.

“Considering each of the 15,000 homes in North Ayrshire are today paying an additional £30 per year “wind scam” tax in their electricity bills, a grand total of £450,000 per year to RES / Lord Kelburn, it is really “generous” of them giving us back 10% as a “gift”.

He was replying to a story that RES is to give £44,000 to local good causes this summer through the voluntary Kelburn Wind Farm trust, chaired by local editor Drew Cochrane.

The full statement and page of letters is in the Largs News of May 30.
