Deputy Michael Colreavy, Sinn Féin spokesperson on communications, energy and natural resources, has said that local concerns must be addressed before the construction of new wind turbines.
Speaking following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding by minister for communication, energy and natural resources, Pat Rabbitte TD and British Secretary for Energy and Climate Change, Edward Davey, Deputy Colreavy said:
“Local concerns must be addressed before any plans to erect new wind turbines are finalised. It is the aim of the British government to source new energy supplies from Ireland for its own domestic market. The concerns of local residents in Ireland must not be swept aside to satisfy the demands of British consumers.
“There needs to be a national strategy to address properly the issue of wind turbines. While Sinn Féin strongly supports the development of renewable energy, the welfare of local residents cannot be sacrificed. What must be developed is a proper system that allows the interests and concerns of all to be aired prior to the erection of wind turbines in an area.” ENDS
