Sustainable Shetland makes call for moratorium on windfarms
A call has been made by Sustainable Shetland for a moratorium on all windfarm development.
The anti windfarm group has responded following a decision by councillors to approve the Mossy Hill project.
The group says it is “bitterly disappointed” by the decision to grant approval of the 12 turbines.
In a statement, chairman Frank Hay said: “Instead of rubber stamping every windfarm application that comes before them councillors should instigate a moratorium on all windfarm development until there is a proper investigation into finding the best environmentally sustainable energy solutions for Shetland.
“We fear that Shetland’s involvement with the wind industry is not going to end well, whatever happens.”
