Renewable Energy Does Work

Scotsman.com News - Alternative energy sources - Works starts on Glasgow windfarm Now if we could just get Kennedy to stop holding up the wind farm he is opposing. (It would disturb his view of the bay.)
Construction work starts today [Monday 9 Oct. 2006] on Europe's biggest onshore wind farm. The £300 million Whitelee site, south of Glasgow, will have 140 turbines eventually to provide electricity to power 200,000 homes.
320 Megawatts of power will be generated.

On a related note, Shell estimated that the market of renewable and "clean" energy would amount to about £30 billion. (That's just over $56 billion.) This is a very rough estimate, but even if it is off by an order of magnitude it is substantial.
