I AM confused by Paul Nuttall's letter (Mailbox, May 7) that condemns wind turbines as producing overpriced and unpredictable power.

I have more certainty that the wind will continue to blow than the Russians will continue to provide cheap oil to the UK for the foreseeable future.

A longer term view is surely that the Wirral should welcome the opportunity to be at the forefront of developing the technology – and jobs – in the renewable energy field, rather than simply saying “not in my back yard”.
