John Dudley lives in Comanche, Texas, and wears a couple of hats: He’s a cattle rancher and a wind farmer. We met on his 20,000 acres in the Texas hill country. His land holds more than half of the 87 turbines that make up the vast Logan’s Gap Wind Farm. His brown Herefords roam among the giant stalks, as they spin up to 40 stories overhead.
Solar Photovoltaic panels and Power Diverter: electricity and hot water all in one!
Still no feed in tarif for solar energy (electricity) – no grants on Solar Photovoltaic panels The public is investing in clean energy. The Government should encourage this and divest from fossil fuels or imported LNG (fracked gas from the US)
No tor Fracking – Yes to Solar.
Did you know that the energy from the windfarms in the midlands(in Ireland) is transported to the UK, so that the UK can comply with the EU regulations to have 20% of their energy from renewable sources?
They prefer Ireland, because regulations in Ireland are less strict than in the UK

Six years ago a simple idea was proposed by a Dublin-based scientist, one that, on paper at least, would leave Ireland awash with clean, zero-carbon electricity. It promised to make us major exporters of power, sending current into Britain via the existing two subsea interconnectors to Wales and Scotland. Continue reading
