RenewableUK’s Executive Director of Policy Ana Musat said: “The Secretary of State’s support for new onshore wind projects in areas where local people want them is timely, as this technology is one of our cheapest sources of new power and one of the fastest to install, at a time we need to increase our domestic energy security to help billpayers. 

“We’re calling for planning legislation to be amended as a matter of urgency to lift the de facto ban on onshore wind in England. The Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill offers an ideal opportunity to boost the UK economy by supplying households and businesses with low-cost and low-carbon electricity, enabling savings on bills to be reinvested into the economy.

“As this technology is supported by more than 70% of the public and over 80% of Conservative voters, we’re confident that most people will back Ministers in levelling the playing field and allowing onshore wind to compete alongside other sources of energy to drive bills down”.
