UK Conservative party plans to ban onshore wind farms, maybe dismantle.

Guardian: “The Conservative party is planning to pledge in its manifesto for next year’s general election that it will introduce a moratorium on future onshore windfarms from 2020 on the grounds that they have now become “self-defeating”.”
“In an attempt to show that David Cameron is not abandoning the green agenda, the Tories will also pledge in their 2015 manifesto to press ahead with an intensification of offshore windfarms.
The manifesto will also focus on greater use of solar power, a point highlighted when the government unveiled plans this week to encourage England’s 22,000 schools to install solar panels and other measures to improve energy efficiency.
….The senior Conservative said it was important to act because onshore windfarms had become so unpopular.
The revelation that the Tories will abandon support for onshore windfarms comes after Michael Gove, the education secretary, and Greg Barker, the climate change minister, outlined ambitions to encourage all 22,000 schools in England to install solar panels.”
