FACT CHECK 2: The Conservative manifesto’s onshore wind pledge

View Full Fact report: The Conservative manifesto’s onshore wind pledge

I’m really pleased to see this picked up by Full Fact – Amber Rudd and other Conservative MP’s have insisted the measures in the Energy Bill shouldn’t have come as a surprise to industry.  Industry was well aware of the Conservative view towards onshore wind and knew an election victory for the Conservatives would result in additional challenges with planning and financial viability of some projects.

However, the scale of the changes was immense – one that cost me and many others our jobs, shook investor confidence and poured millions of pounds of investment in some really good projects down the drain.
