"Turbines on Lakeen" from wicklore Expand pics
Turbines on Lakeen (Expand pics)
Wind Turbines
I was thinking about wind turbines after 'climbing' Lakeen recently and seeing the six that are on top of this hill. It would be interesting to know what MV members think about them as I am sure there are many hilltops covered in them around the country. (as well as offshore-Arklow comes to mind) Does their benefit outweigh the local environmental damage? I find them pleasant enough but I never had to suffer the effects of a landslide caused by building them. What is it like to live near them, or constantly have them on the horizon? Any other views?
