Not a lot of point until the distribution network can work better than recently?  Or is the bottleneck further west?

In Devon, the big grid connections are mor to the south, going between Taunton and Exeter. Then along to Indian Quuens in cornwall.

The local distribution system is bottlenecked by local wind. Could take the power to South Wales instead. There is a supergrid connection to Pembroke power station. Otherwise some uprating will be rquired.

love the incorrect usage of the word rota, instead of rotor, to describe the actual turbine blades!

He's talking about a site west of Lundy, which would take it far enough out that Pembroke might be the closest connection to land anyway.

I had emailed the journalist, I wonder if I'll get a reply or he can be bothered to correct it.  It pained me to read it.
