How wind power distorts the energy marketplace

A well-argued piece in this week's The Economist acknowledges the merits of renewable energy but goes on to explain why more wind or solar power may not be a good thing. Food for thought as West Dorset planners prepare to take a decision on the Slyers Lane proposal at the end of January. Renewable power is good. More renewable power is not always better

About us
No Slyers Lane Turbines is a group objecting to the development of six wind turbines just north of Dorchester, Dorset.

These industrial turbines will be 377ft tall and visible from as far away as Poole. They will tower over surrounding villages as well as the county town, and the iconic Poundbury development.

The wind farm is being proposed by private equity firm Broadview Energy.
