Wind Power

An article by Newsnet Scotland today revealed that independent think tank, the IPPR, have published a report dismissing a lot of the negative thoughts regarding wind power.

This report has addressed two common misconceptions on wind power technology: firstly, that it is not an effective way of reducing carbon emissions; and, secondly, that wind power is too variable to be a reliable source of electricity.

I’ve always been lead to believe that wind turbines weren’t financially viable because of the government subsidies afforded to them.
That might not be the case, after all.
