It would seem that people power is alive and kicking. Anti-pylon campaigners in Montgomeryshire will be celebrating this evening with the announcement from the First Minister, Carwyn Jones that the Welsh Government will be setting limits on rural windfarms and so Montgomeryshire Pylons and sub-stations are not needed.
The First Minister said,
” My Government would not support the construction of large pylons in Mid Wales and my Ministers are pressing this case with National Grid Transmission and with Ofgem”
The statement can be read in full here. This has been a fast moving campaign which has found success faster thatn many had expected.
