B9 Energy originally build Bessy Bell Co. Tyrone (now looking at phase 3 development) and has been responsible for several other Windfarms in the Omagh area. This company is planning to build yet another Windfarm on Slievard and Rylagh, in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty.
"Omagh, County Tyrone at the Foothills of the Sperrins"
How this promotes culture, leisure and tourism is beyond me...
P.S. take note of the misleading information provided...
e.g. "Stimulate UK manufacturing industry to take a lead in the growing world-wide markets for renewable energy."
Turbines are manufactured in Germany and imported here.
e.g. "Wind turbines are a temporary change to the landscape. A well-sited wind farm will not cause any disturbance."
There is nothing temporary about it...tonnes of steel, concrete, miles of heavy duty roads and irreversible damage to blanket bogs, flora/fauna, bats, birds, etc, etc.
Also fails to specify what 'well sited' means...many of these same wind farms have been associated with sleep disturbance.
