Trendy roof turbines are not as green as they look says The Observer. <smugness/>
Paul Gipe has some thoughts on this:
- Rooftop Turbines: Rooftop Mounting and Building Integration of Wind Turbines
- Roof Top Over the Top in Britain
- Roof Top Windsave in Scotland

You just know someone bought this system from B&Q (yes, really, they’re selling them there now) and got a ‘specialist’ consultant to come and do a full review for them before they installed it.
Well, at least they shouldn’t have any serious problems y rgetting their money back when (if) they realise that they’ve been sold a lemon.
I like how planning regulations say that it’s OK to fit a turbine as long as it’s not higher than any surrounding houses. But, if it’s not higher than them, then… it won’t… whaaaa?
