Italian town of Tocco transformed by wind turbines
An Italian town has been able to offer local residents cheap public services and subsidised amenities because of the success of the local wind turbines.
The town of Tocco makes so much electricity from wind power that it is able to sell off what it does not need and pump the profits back into local services.
There is a video report from Duncan Kennedy available here.
A great quote from a resident: “think YIMBY, not NIMBY: Yes, in my back yard”
