Cost of wind

SIR - Never mind the job losses for the construction of the wind turbines if the offshore wind farm does not go ahead, have you considered the job losses for the tourism industry if this project does go ahead?
Do you really think that tourists will flock to our beaches to look at this view of hundreds of rotating blades over and over again? Or do you think they might come for the beauty of our coastline?
Have you even considered the job losses overall if this project does go ahead - as we would have to try to absorb the additional charges in our electricity bills to cover the huge cost of wind power? This would apply to all residents and businesses.
I think it would be wise for our councillors to investigate the real costs of wind power prior to making assumptions that this project would be a good thing.
