Causeway Bridge Farm wind turbine application.

Energy4All: have applied for planning permission for a wind turbine just off the Manby to Saltfleetby road. (People who live near me will know where this is.) It will be cooperatively owned by all who wish to invest in renewable electricity generation.

Look at the Energy4All website to find out how it works and how you can get involved

The planning application is with East Lindsey District Council, reference number N/113/02189/12 and can be viewed here: ... APR_111470

Please help by writing letters of support directly to ELDC or via the Bernard Matthews Wind Energy Coop website

Remember, every unit of electricity generated by wind means a unit that will not be generated by burning fossil carbon.

The Government has decided that investing in wind is a good idea:
The government is buying a multimillion pound equity stake in a series of onshore windfarms in an unusual move that is likely to anger Tory backbench MPs campaigning against public subsidies for one of the most controversial forms of renewable energy.

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) is spending £50m on six windfarms – five onshore and one offshore – through a "cornerstone" stake in a renewable energy fund called Greencoat UK Wind, launched on Wednesday. Some of the farms are being bought outright, while others involve a stake of less than 50% being purchased from two of the big six energy companies, RWE and SSE. ... -windfarms

Didn't "Small is Beautiful" conclude with the idea of the Government effectively owning a 50% stake in all industries?

Schumacher had a lot of good ideas, sadly ignored.
