New planning rules introduced by central government mean wind farms should only get the go-ahead if clearly backed by local people.
GUSTS "There will be a constant, mean wind of 45 to 55kmh but short-term gusts will reach 80 to 100kmh.
The Met Office and TORRO (The Tornado and Storm Research Organisation) estimated that the tornado had a general 'T4' rating on the TORRO scale with a short spell as a 'T5' tornado, which would mean wind speeds between 93 and 130 mph, equivalent to an F2 on the Fujita scale.
Tatge concluded, "Gust wind speeds compared to mean wind speeds were unusually high and compare to values for Kyrill in 2007.
The hub height is generally cost-optimised for each specific site taking account three things: The increase of mean wind speeds with height and therefore energy production of the turbine with higher towers; Increased cost of higher towers and consequential increase in foundation costs; External constraints, e.

To obtain a relatively meaningful wind speed figure an anemometer would necessitate being on site for at least two years so as to measure local wind speeds, then a mean wind speed figure would need to be identified so as to extrapolate a guestimated annual generation figure.
Surely, those idiots on the council can work out that "Outstanding Beauty" in AONB doesn''t mean wind turbines
