I'm all for alternative methods of renewable energy, even if it sometimes means blighting our beautiful countryside.

One thing I find difficult to stomach is the fact that when planning permission is sometimes given for wind turbines, the very least you should ask for is the fact that they work.

The wind turbines in question are at Nangitha Farm and can been seen from miles around the Falmouth area. I think they went up a few years ago, and hopefully they produced some electricity initially, because since August last year they haven't moved, not one revolution, not once. If they're not working wind turbines producing electricity, they're just an eyesore and need taking down.

I know a lot of people are thinking the same as me, someone needs to find out what's going on. Get them working, or take them down.
