Ignoring interest and running costs, we can see it would have paid back its cost in 800 years time.
Quite apart from the astonishing initial waste of taxpayers’ money, there is also the question of how much the Welsh Government were paying for maintenance, until the manufacturer went bust.
One would assume it must have been significantly more than £5/month. It is one thing wasting money on the initial project. But once it was operational and the income and costs easily identified, why was it not shut down years ago?
It also begs the question, how many more wind turbines like this one are also as ineffective?
