If I'm talking crap, please feel free to tell me so.
Why, instead of wind farms, don't we have legislation whereby every new building built in Scotland must have solar panels?
Solar panels are not unsightly (or, at least, I don't find them so).
And Scotland doesn't need to produce more electricity anyway: we already over-produce and export it to England, Northern Ireland and, now, directly to Wales. That's good, of course, but would "exports" drop significantly if we dumped the windfarms and went for mass solar panelling instead?
