Removing Wind Turbines From The South Pennines


Spicer Hill

Spicer Hill Wind Farm is located to the north east of the Peak District at an altitude of approximately 300 metres above sea level. Up close it looks remarkably shabby and unattractive. Is this really the future? One wonders how much electricity has REALLY been generated by these pathetic looking spindles. That's the real-life, objectively recorded production figures that show how much electricity has actually been generated by the wind farm so far. Not the "capacity", which is the figure normally used by manufacturers (ie the absolute maximum amount of electricity that could hypothetically be generated, if there was one long hurricane lasting the next twenty years, assuming the turbines don't fall to pieces in the meantime).
