Over 195,000 of Wind Turbines Will Invade Britain

Over 195,000 of wind turbines will be installed in UK in the next 12 years, according to consultants on energetic matters, after the British government has guaranteed that people will have their own electricity.
A grant program will be introduced for any household which adopt renewable energies such as wind, solar or biomass-based and will receive money for the energy that it produce, as part of measures to combat climate change.
Energy Saving Trust (EST), the independent group responsible for improving energy efficiency in Britain, predicted that the introduction of such subsidies would urge 8.6 million people to invest in clean energy.
According to EST, 195,100 wind turbines will be installed in the next 12 years. Approximately 112,000 will be quite small enough to be attached to the roof, while 83,000 will be larger models.
Nearly 921,000 houses will install solar panels for heating water and generating electricity. The ecologists say that this development of alternative energies will help Britain to reach its ambitious targets for reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 80% until 2050.
At present, only 100,000 UK homes, have renewable energy installations. In Germany, where subsidies for the clean energy adoption have already been introduced, more than a million homes produce their own electricity.
