Giant Windfarm in England Approved

One of Britain's biggest windfarms is to be built off the Suffolk coast after the Government granted approval. The Greater Gabbard scheme, to be sited 23km (12 miles) off the coast, would have the potential to supply power to 415,000 homes, the government said.

Power from the 140 turbines would help cut carbon dioxide emissions by 1.5m tonnes a year - equivalent to taking 350,000 cars off the road.

Excellent news. This story I got from the BBC. When I want continuous news and commentary about alternative energy, Jerome over at the European Tribune often has links and original reporting done on wind and other power issues. Those interested in the subject should bookmark that site which is continually updated with new information.
