Hayes reiterates scepticism regarding onshore wind farms

Energy minister John Hayes has told Channel 4 News the UK does not need to plan any more onshore wind farms.

My Hayes’ views concerning onshore wind farms have been voiced in the run up to the release of the Energy Bill, due this week.

The Energy Bill will attempt to invite investment in renewables and add incentives for nuclear power stations.

Similar comments were made only last month by Mr Hayes who had been asked by Liberal Democrat energy secretary Ed Davey to change his speech to thousands of industry representatives at trade body Renewable UK’s annual conference.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change subsequently issued a press release stating that there were no targets or caps for onshore wind.
