Poll: Do you welcome the announcement of plans to export wind energy to Britain?

Up to 30,000 jobs could be created under new plans but they could lead to hundreds of wind turbines being built in the midlands. Do you welcome the plans?

MINISTER PAT RABBITTE will sign a Memorandum of Understanding today that will lead to a full agreement allowing Ireland to export wind-generated electricity to Britain.

It is expected that up to 30,000 indigenous jobs could be created countrywide, along with investments of over €18 billion by 2020 if the required enablers along with this agreement are put in place.

However the agreement could lead to hundreds of wind turbines being built in the Irish midlands and plans like this have caused controversy in the past with those living in areas where wind farms are being planned.

So we ask: Do you welcome the announcement of plans to export wind energy to Britain?


Poll Results:

No (1970)
Yes (1838)
I'm not sure (443)
