"the decline in coal mining fortunes forced its closure in 1989."
Not so, it was Thatcher's ideological war with the National Union of Mineworkers that closed it. There were still millions of tons of saleable coal in Oakdale pit, but by running down the entire industry the government of the time all but destroyed the local community.

As I have stated previously why don't Caerphilly cbc have these in penalta or maesycwmmer? Oakdale have enough electricity pylons without these as well. Oakdale want facilities, the institute was given to st fagans, oakdale hospital was sold for housing and (the oakdale miners paid for them) they should have been given to the community who paid for them. The public toilets were demolished and the hotel boarded up. Endless housing estates with poorly constructed houses (especially behind oakdale garage) in oakdale but still no facilities.

I can see these monstrosities from my lounge, currently one is turning, the other rigidly prone. Wrong type of wind? They hardly ever turn in unison but remain quite still on most days. What a waste of time, money, effort.

Too windy then the turbines have to be switched off because there's a tendency for the mechanism to explode.

"expected to power the equivalent of 2,400 homes (10 gigawatt-hours) per year, an annual CO2 emissions saving of around 4,400 tonnes." - Surely this is best case scenario? I would like to see proper projection figures for this.
