Opposing wind farms will lose you votes, MPs warned
7:00am Friday 18th July 2014 in News
A RENEWABLE energy group says politicians in the South-West would lose more votes than they gain for denouncing onshore wind farms.
RenewableUK commissioned a study by independent pollsters ComRes which found 33% of people in this region would be less likely to vote for a party which proposes halting the building of further wind farms while only 14% said they would be more likely to vote for that party.
