Wind turbine on every farm 'within five years'
WIND power expert Mark Newton believes every farm in the UK will have a wind turbine in five years’ time.
Commenting on the announcement of a free guide from Farming Futures, Mr Newton said the guide outlined how landowners could assess their wind resource, what they need to consider when putting together a planning proposal, and where they can go for advice.
Madeleine Lewis from Farming Futures said, “Producing energy on-farm can turn a profit and provide renewable energy.”
