No more turbines says Clydesdale MP David Mundell

Scotland may have less than 10 per cent of the UK population but it does have more than 50 per cent of the UK’s onshore wind turbines, it has been revealed.

And news that there are currently 2315 operating turbines north of the border has angered Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale MP David Mundell.

His views on windfarms, especially in his large rural constituency, are simply “enough is enough”.

This is backed up by the latest analysis carried out on April 11 which showed a total of 4350 in the UK, meaning Scotland is more than pulling its weight with the renewable energy burden.

And in addition to the windfarms already up-and-running, another 405 turbines are under construction.
