Wind power does not produce dangerous waste, nor does it contribute to global warming.
It accounts for approximately 27% of electricity production in Denmark, 16% in Spain and Portugal, 12% in Ireland and 10% in Germany (Source: EWEA).
As one of the worlds largest proposed offshore wind parks, Codling is likely to attract tourists once constructed. Boat trips out to the site and local information offices are just some of the ways the public can gain access to Codling.
It creates jobs.
According to the European Wind Energy Association, in times of economic recession, the wind power sector in 2010 employed around 238,000. In the future the number of jobs could increase to 520,000 in 2020 and 794,079 in 2030. (Source: EWEA).
