Was wind turbine put in wrong place?

Paul Burrell works at Anemos, a company that installs small and medium sized
wind turbines, and said the location of the turbine – in a valley and next
to tall buildings – means it won’t spin properly. He said they should be put
in the most exposed location possible to generate maximum electricity, with
most repaying their value within eight years.

He said: “I think the problem is quite simple – it’s been put in the wrong
place.”

Neither the Welsh government or Mitie, which acted as the contractor on the
project, confirmed if advice from Quiet Revolution was taken into account
when the turbine was installed.

A spokesman for the Welsh government said they were on track to meet the
target of reducing carbon emissions, and had already achieved a 17 per cent
reduction.
