EURO-MP & CANDIDATE GET INSIDE INFO ON WIND TURBINE

Tuesday, 30 March 2010

SNP Westminster candidate for Banff & Buchan Eilidh Whiteford and Euro-MP and Member of the European Parliament's Agriculture Committee Alyn Smith got the inside information on a wind turbine when they were shown the inner workings of the turbine at Bruxiehill, near St Fergus, yesterday.
The turbine was erected only a few months ago by Peter Robertson and his wife Dr Elaine Booth of Ednie Farms and is already making a significant contribution to the national grid.

Euro-MP Alyn Smith was touring farming-related businesses with SNP candidate Eilidh Whiteford and earlier visited Turriff Fuels and Harbro Farm Sales, also in Turriff.

Commenting afterwards, SNP Westminster candidate for Banff & Buchan Eilidh Whiteford said:

"Wind turbines have a valuable role to play in our energy mix as we move towards a low carbon economy and tackling climate change. Generating energy from wind can help our farmers diversify their businesses, making them more sustainable.

"In some parts of Banff & Buchan, wind energy is also providing a valuable income stream that is being used to invest in community facilities and amenities that bring added benefits to our villages and towns."
