UK refuses wind farm

Oct 4, 2015 by To the Triton

The British government has refused a wind farm in the English Channel that would have included up to 194 wind turbines, according to news reports.
Navitus Bay would have been built off the Isle of Wight and would have generated 970 megawatts, enough to power 700,000 homes. It would have run through MHI Vestas’ 8 megawatt turbine, the world’s most powerful.
The Examining Authority noted that the visual impacts of the project were of “serious concern.”
