Troy hits out at wind farm strategy  

Credit:  Longford Leader | 26 April 2013 | www.longfordleader.ie ~~

Longford-Westmeath Fianna Fáil TD Robert Troy has said he is extremely disappointed over the Minister for Energy and Natural Resources’ “flat refusal” to consider implementing a moratorium on wind farms while a new national renewable energy strategy is developed.

Deputy Troy raised the issue directly with Minister Rabbitte and said: “The proposed wind farm will affect entire communities across the midlands which are not being consulted”. The scale of the development will mean that any potential application will need to go directly to An Bord Pleanála,” he added. “The Government should introduce a moratorium on any future development until such a strategy is introduced. The national strategy should encompass all renewable energy sources – wind, biomass, solar and others. There should be consultation with the various industries, the local community groups, environmental groups and the various departments.”
