Mammoth wind farm to meet needs of 40% of Scottish homes and starts one year AHEAD of schedule


From Energy Voice yesterday:

‘The multi-billion Moray East Offshore Wind Farm project will kick into life almost a year ahead of schedule from its operations and maintenance centre at Fraserburgh Harbour. It is hoped that it will bring a significant jobs boost for the area. The Moray Firth wind developers also revealed earlier this year that the wind farm will be able to “meet the needs of 40% of Scotland’s households”. Moray East Offshore Wind Farm added that it will also generate power at almost two-thirds less than the cost of current UK wind farms. The development is expected to power more than 950,00 homes. It was originally expected to begin construction work in 2021.’

    Talking about wind power.

    Oor Ruthie states that she expects (nice Nelson touch) all the southern candidates ( and they are all from the south) for Tory leader to deny Scotland a section 30 order.

    In terms of what they bring forth in their manifesto’s on this issue?—- “Let ME judge it”—she boasts with her vast, inflated ego.

    “Me! Mine! My party! I will decide! My red lines!—If we could only harness Davidson’s hubris, there would be energy galore.

    But she gets away with it in the “Scottish” media. No mention of the collapse of Tory votes up here.

    Abroad Ive seen several of these things blown over, on fire and killing the wildlife. Surely they must be contributing to the changes in wind patterns??
