Wind 0 – 18 mph, Wales 4 – 14 mph, 0809 local time

The effective wind speed in the Betws area now is only 5 mph, an average of 14 mph minus 9 mph needed to start the turbines. Their optimal wind speed is about 20 to 45 mph, and so these turbines will never produce any significant power and should be demolished before they start to disintegrate. Once subsidies are dropped the remote cabal will have no interest or money to maintain them. Solar is a spectacular 0.63% so solar panels contribute essentially nothing to the grid (University of Sheffield estimate on because solar is not metred). The average year round contribution of wind to the grid in Wales is a ridiculous 2%. So they are a total failure forced through by insane greed, and let through by weak and incompetent governments in both London and Cardiff. I would advocate raising the money for turbine lagoons by private means and start work. This is what Brunel would have done, or my ancestor Morgan Morgan of Craig y Nos.
