Wind Power Question: Will wind farming affect tourism?

Answer: There is no evidence to suggest that wind farms have an adverse affect on tourism but there is evidence that suggests it may in fact be a tourism draw. The UK's first commercial wind farm at Delabole received 350,000 visitors in its first ten years of operation. A MORI poll in Scotland showed that 80% of tourists would be interested in visiting a wind farm. Furthermore, wind farm developers are often asked to provide a visitor centre, viewing platforms and rights of way to their sites.
