The British public are big fans of onshore wind power.
But the government don't get it.
Onshore wind is cheap, popular, and a vital part of tackling climate change. But a group of MPs have been campaigning against it - and they’ve persuaded the government to block new wind projects from even getting started.
Since 2015, when the government removed financial support and changed planning regulations to make it extremely difficult (and expensive) for onshore wind projects to get the go ahead, applications for new wind projects have plummeted.
Here at Possible, we’re campaigning for a lift on the effective ban on onshore wind. If we’re to tackle climate change, we need to clean up our energy system ASAP, and we can’t do that without wind power.
