What we all need wen Christmas and the new year comes around is a jolly good, healthy walk. Out in the brisk winter sunshine. Hats and coats on with gloves. Nothing makes you feel more alive and bursting with the joy of being so, than seeing the countryside still ticking over and uually a wind farm or individual power wind mill. This is the case near me. A couple of small holdings are equipped with all sorts of schemes. Solar panels, fields with panels propped like lurching bushes, just that bit blacker and shinier.
The need to help preserve as much energy for ourselves as possible is really coming home and it is also getting very much easier. There are experts out there who have studied the whys and wherefors of each scheme. Government advisers are usually available to ensure we don’t get ripped off by fly merchants.
