A poll of 3,600 adults, released today (July 16), shows 69% of respondents supported building onshore wind farms, including 60% of respondents who identified as Conservative voters. Responding, Fabrice Leveque, Senior Policy Manager at Scottish Renewables, said: "Onshore wind is cheap, popular, and a vital tool in both meeting our climate change targets and delivering jobs and investment across Scotland. "The results of this new polling show clearly that the UK Government's exclusion of most onshore wind projects from the energy market flies in the face of public opinion. "While projects on Scotland's islands can now compete alongside other sources of clean electricity we would urge ministers to lift the ban on mainland onshore wind projects and allow this technology to do more of what it's already doing: delivering clean electricity, jobs, investment and social benefits for rural Scotland." Details of the poll, which was conducted by RenewableUK, can be found on the organisation's website. Statistics on onshore wind in Scotland can be found on Scottish Renewables' website.
