Reader letter: Wind turbines offer neither cheap nor free energy

I have to take issue with J Riddler on one observation (Letters, February 7).

What parallel universe does this person live on to state that the technology is there to provide free energy in a world of soaring energy bills, I salute anyone with the sense to source free or cheaper energy.

First, this type of renewable energy is not free, indeed it is proven to be very expensive and we, through the government, are subsidising it heavily through our power bills that are rising exponentially with this being a major factor.

Furthermore, the last time I looked, Wellington Road in Eye is not within sight of the turbines and therefore it’s all to easy to be in favour of them when they don’t affect you.
