On our local news last night about a wind turbine installed at our swish new Welsh assembley building in Aberystwyth, you couldn't make it up.

 

The Welsh government said there had been mechanical problems with the turbine and that throughout 2012 it was only operating at 26% of its capacity.

 

Some improvements have been made and as of January this year it has been operating at 68%.

 

But if it continues to operate at 68% capacity then it will generate 55.25 kWh per month - electricity with a value of £8.84.

 

At that rate it would take around 452 years to offset the cost of buying and installing the turbine. :D

 

Mind you the same council spent millions on a new multi storey car park at Bronglais to replace the single storey one, that provided, wait for it.................................................................... *-) 3 new additional spaces,

 

nice to know public money is in good hands.
