Rural Area Threatened By Renewable Energy Project

Proposed wind farm in the U.K. faces opposition from rural community.

"Rural areas are coming under increasing pressure to provide sites for renewable energy projects...

By 2010, ministers hope to have at least 10% of its electricity produced through renewable sources."
