Fife Wind Targets Now Fulfilled?

A regular reader of this blog sent this article today, concerning the ambitious renewables targets that we are constantly told by Alex Salmond, Scotland needs to hit.

This article, in the Courier at the beginning of March, concerns the targets in Fife. According to this report, Fife have already hit the mark with regards to wind. Robin Presswood, the Business & Strategy Manager at Fife Council, says that by 2014, all the projects that currently have planning permission will produce enough electricity to power all the homes in Fife. It begs the question, 'Why do we need any more wind turbines here when we have been able to hit the targets through biomass and other means?'

Surely it's time for the politicians to call a halt?
