Six Gigawatts of wow it's great buy cialis online without prescription Wind for Scotland!

A coalition of energy companies and order levitra canada the Crown Estate (who owns the land) are hammering out a deal to build six gigawatts of wind power off the coast of Scotland. You heard that right, gigawatts. That's the equivalent, roughly, of seven humongous nuclear power plants and will account for tens of billions of dollars in investment.

The Crown Estate (that's right...the Queen) owns the rights to develop the land off the coast of the U.K.. They're working with nine different energy companies on the deal, and have granted each of them access to we use it canadian pharmacy viagra build wind farms on specific plots of levitra plus the continental shelf.

Unfortunately, this isn't the same as the projects being a done deal. They each have to be regulated by the Scottish government (wouldn't it be simpler if the UK were still a monarchy?) That isn't expected to be completed until sometime in 2010, and then the projects will have to find funding. Depending on how well the economy recovers (or doesn't) by 2011, that could be a tall order.

glad to see at least somebody is willing to start making the hard decisions, renewable solar and wind wont make any difference unless they are done on a large scale and accompanied by overall reduction in energy consumption. this is a great step forward!
2, not 7 nukes

Given the capacity factor of wind and nuke plants and the somewhat larger size of planned nuke plants, this is really more like 2 nuke plants, not seven.

The UK will need some more gas power plants to balance that, or better we need to speed up development of wave power.

I hope all you people have had the goodness to ask nature to please keep the wind blowing for ever, as without that happening I doubt if you would get the power of cialis no rx required even 2 nuke plants.
