The Independent - 25/05/08

Wind turbines are replacing pitheads in providing Wales with power, as its valleys turn green again. With energy prices scaling record heights, the principality is preparing to lead Britain out of the carbon age.

Wales will this week become the first country in the world formally to report on the growth of its "ecological footprint" ? the measure of its impact on the planet's resources.

It already leads the rest of the UK in trying to reduce it by, for example, getting all its electricity from renewable sources.

There?ll be a welcome in these hillsides ........ Very Happy

This is very nice but Wales has a wind energy strategy (TAN Cool which was agreed in October 2007, and to which unfortunately (last time I looked on BWEA) they've not managed to keep up. Perhaps it's finally taking off now...
