Note the sizes of these two they are only farm turbines ! , they are the same size and bigger than the Bradworthy 3 at Stowford Cross.

The Photo Montages as always do not reflect the size on the landscape as seen with the naked eye.

Picture showing all properties within 1.5Km radius of each of the five turbines will add more pins to most of the single properties when time permits.

Map shows positions of all known turbines taken from Council Planning Sites

We now have around 120 turbines working or in planning within a 15km radius of Bradworthy

(Total Visible on Map 451)

Key to Pin Colours is now on map.

If I have missed any or the status has changed please let me know

If you download the Google Addin Map (Turbine.KMZ) below you will get a better idea of what is happening.

I have grouped the turbines together in working , planning etc... so you can easily turn off different groups to aid viewing.

I will also carry on adding the planning numbers and location details onto each turbine pin.

Started adding Teignbridge , East Devon , South Hams.

I have added some 3D turbine models on the KMZ file

 

I know its not perfect but at least I am trying to show what is happening to DEVON !!!!

Right Click and "Save Target As" (KMZ File)

 

We already have Fullabrook residents complaining of not being able to sleep properly because of the constant noise, lets stop Meddon Plan now before it is to late.

They will not be happy till North Devon is covered in Turbines so be warned it may be Meddon now but trust me it will be your area Next.

This is a spreadsheet I try and keep updated with what it is roughly costing the electricity bill payers

of this country to subsidies wind power the total is now over £1 Billion !! just on the information I can gather from

BM Reports website and what the average price of one ROC is worth.

Just added to Pictures section google 3d view of proposed turbine site.

 

Please keep checking site as we will add new content as and when available
