Harvington Gets a Makeover for 2011

By stoplenchwickwindfarm | December 7, 2008

The historic Vale of Evesham Village of Harvington in rural Worcestershire is due to get a completely new landscape if Spanish owned Scottish Power Renewables have their way.

Scottish Power Renewables the wholly owned subsidiary of Spanish Utilities company Iberdrola the same company that two years ago purchased the turbine manufacturer Gamesa in order to monopolise the supply of turbines, plans to construct a massive industrial power plant right in the middle of this outstandingly beautiful countryside by erecting 10 (ten) of the UK’s largest on-shore wind turbines each 125m high.

With the advent of a moratorium of construction of Industrial Wind Turbine Power Stations in Spain, Iberdrola has turned it’s focus on the UK and through Scottish Power Renewables.  Scottish Power Renewables plans to totally change the landscape and lives of the villagers living in and around the quiet rural idyll village of Harvington.

These monster turbines, each of which will only ever produce 20% of their rated output, meaning that they will still have to be backed up by conventional power generation sources, will be turning day and night, whenever the wind blows, causing light disturbance (flicker) and constant low frequency noise which is set to destroy this haven of peace and tranquility and will cause residents considerable sleepness nights.

Just look at how Scottish Power Renewables plans to transform Harvington:

    Firstly, thank you for this enlightening article. I fail to understand the reasoning behind building wind farms in the UK, when energy output from them is negligible (and that’s only when the wind is blowing). Even if wind farms were built over every available inch in the UK, they wouldn’t even come close to producing enough energy to meet our country’s requirements. Obviously the only benefactors are the Government for meeting so called “targets” for green energy and the energy suppliers who are no doubt set to receive huge pay-outs in providing same. I am certain that if more of the population were wise to the actual facts and figures, wind farms would have no backing from the public. On a personal note, I was shocked to learn that my own energy supplier, Scottish Power, is behind the Harvington wind farm plans. I am now changing my supplier and prompt everyone else to do the same.

    Absolutely ridiculous – what an eye sore. The aliens have landed
