One will burn 1.1m litres of the stuff a year. In a stunning understatement a spokesman for the local Regen centre for green energy said it “does not make environmental sense” but undismayed the developers countered with this classic:

“Whilst the proposed diesel generators do not constitute low carbon or renewable energy, the nature, scale and function of the proposed development is such that it will support the broader strategy for renewable and low carbon energy.” 

It’s all to do with needing back-up capacity for when the wind doesn’t blow (something the wind farm companies have been saying won’t be needed, honest). You’ll be hearing a lot more of it soon, maybe in a town near you, so don’t forget: dirty is clean and nasty is nice.
