World's Offshore Largest Wind Farm Approved

The world's largest wind farm, which has been planned for the ocean off the coast of Kent, UK, for some time has been officially approved. However, the project, which is being planned by Eon and buy generic no online prescription viagra Shell energy companies, is being threatened by an increase and projected costs, and possible regulatory problems with transmitting the power.

A substation and the power cables necessary to transport the power to population centers are being fought by locals. At the same time, the projected cost of the project has increased from £1.5bn to £2bn.

Locals are uninterested in having the revistaneon.net 340 turbine project in their back yard, but the UK needs to focus on these massive renewable projects in order to meet its Kyoto targets. Without them, it simply won't happen.

Trust Shell and Eon

to take an environmental dream - sustainable power - and potentially make it an environmental nightmare - the world's largest wind farm.
While they seemingly embrace green technology (a cold controlling embrace, me thinks) they don't seem to levitra online shop be able to grasp the concept that 'measured' is best ie more solar power is good - covering the whole of Cornwall with a roof of solar panels might be bad!
Come on Shell and Eon - you're cleverer than this; and we are too.

Wind Farms

This is not the largest wind farm by a long shot. The largest, that I know of, is in northern Texas being built by Boone Pickens. It will have 2,700 turbines at a cost of $3mm each, that comes to over $8 billion.

See, everything IS bigger in Texas.

Regulatory problems? Sheesh, I can understand problems with engineering or physics, but it's nonsense that man-made laws, probably frivolous ones not designed for projects like this, could kill green energy production. Rewrite those damn law books to make more sense.

The locals would have much more interest

...they were somehow reaping direct economic benefits from the windfarm. Beside the fact that I think they are cool to look at, not everybody does. If local people had a better sense of only for you get levitra online ownership in the buy discount viagra whole process, from planning to siting and maybe even collective ownership.
