In December 2015, we were acknowledged by one of the proponents of wind power as having substantially influenced thinking about turbine developments on Anglesey.
Unfortunately, they confuse turbine developments with climate change, which leaves little room to give credibility to their figures (which we can’t verify). However, they claim that the numbers come directly from Anglesey County Council and if that’s true, we can only be pleased that:

The FT has (1 April 2016) identified more coal fired power stations being kept open because we are running out of power generation resources.
“One of Britain’s biggest coal-fired power stations has been given a last-minute reprieve thanks to a new service contract from National Grid and the promise of more subsidies to come.
SSE announced on Wednesday it had decided not to close Fiddlers Ferry in Cheshire, in part because the government has promised more subsidies to back-up generators through the so-called “capacity mechanism”. One of its four boilers is being mothballed, while the other three will be kept open.
The move means that two of the country’s largest coal plants have been saved in recent weeks thanks to back-up contracts from the grid and government. Eggborough in Yorkshire announced last month it would be mothballed rather than closed down entirely after securing new payments from the grid to remain available as emergency back-up.
Ministers and officials have had to move swiftly in recent weeks to make sure the UK has enough electricity to get it through what experts are predicting will be the tightest winter ever for supplies.”
At the same time the Crown Commissioners are showing that about 1.5% of our power requirement is being generated by wind.
Their excellent web site presents current power generation figures as well as historical data and is a worthy successor of the RWE web site - which we assume was withdrawn because it showed how little wind power was contributing to our needs.
Now we know we shouldn’t say “I told you so”, but …………..
