Wind farms and ice-cream, what's not to love.

Ben & Jerry's joins the campaign to support onshore windfarms

Tubs of Strawberry Breeze-cake, Cherry Gale-cia and other wind-themed ice-creams will feature in a campaign by Ben & Jerry’s to persuade the government to rethink its opposition to onshore windfarms.

The renamed flavours will be sold at half price on “windy Wednesdays” to support a pro-renewables push by the Unilever-owned firm, which has a history of campaigning on climate change and environmental issues.

The company’s intervention comes amid an industry lobbying effort to convince ministers to scrap obstacles for onshore windfarms.

They have largely stopped being built since the Conservatives ended subsidies and introduced planning reforms.

Just call me Mart.     Cardiff: 5.58kWp PV - (3.58kWp SE3500 + 2kWp SE2200 WNW)

Signed... (even though we're based in Scotland).

One plus about onshore wind is the community benefit funding that feeds directly into the local area. My own community receives £34K a year plus a share of a broader £26K fund, ring-fenced to support education into work... all thanks to onshore wind. Already, a modest amount of money is starting to make a difference to our area; after 25-years, who knows what can be achieved... it won't make things worse, that's for sure!
