SIR - I was annoyed to read in my Saturday weekend paper that the “saving the planet “ wind farms are receiving vast amounts of money for producing nothing. The Renewable Energy Foundation has carried research which states that the wind farm owners received £108 million pounds in 2017 in constraint payments which is paid when the turbines are shut down. This up from £6 million in paid in 2012, a total of £367 million in 5 years.

While this is going on I have to pay 15per cent extra on my electricity bills and five per cent extra on my gas bills to fund this.

What a crazy world we live in.
