Company wants solar, not wind  

Credit:  By Manx Radio | 23 October 2013 | www.isleofman.com ~~

The company at the centre of a row in the House of Keys this week says it’s planning solar generators for Jurby – not wind turbines.

Last night, a public meeting in Jurby expressed its opposition to five turbines the company said it wanted to build on the airfield as part of a proposed factory employing 100 people.

In the House of Keys this week, Economic Development Minister John Shimmin said the wind turbine factory couldn’t use 100-metre high turbines because the airfield is still earmarked for aviation.

But today, Keith Brooks, the managing director of Prowind UK Ltd, said the company would use a battery of solar panels to power its facility instead.

Mr Brooks didn’t want to be interviewed over the proposals.
