Doing your research

Information on wind energy is available from many sources. However, much of this can be inaccurate and misleading.

Unfortunately, there is also a lot of information put into the public domain aimed at misrepresenting individual projects. This being the case, it is important to ensure that the images or information you have is accurate. Should you request it, we would be happy to provide accurate information on this project or point you towards sources of genuine peer-reviewed information.
