Building wind farms in England is pointless because it isn’t windy enough, the boss of Britain’s biggest wind power firm has said. Keith Anderson, chief executive of Scottish Power, which supplies gas and electricity to nearly five million homes, said he will put up more turbines – but only in Scotland and Wales. He told The Mail on Sunday that although he believes the future of the UK’s electricity will come from wind, there is not enough wind or suitable land in England to make any new project financially viable. Scotland, by contrast, has ‘the best wind in Northern Europe’, Anderson said – making it his preferred destination as his company ploughs £1.7 billion into the technology this year.
