The press often focuses on the perceived negatives of wind power rather than the benefits. A few letters could show how much the public love wind. 

If you've never done it before, here's a quick guide to how to write to a newspaper.


Wind is a local issue: there's planning regulations and debate in communities about turbines. So your council needs to know why you back wind! This is especially important if you live in a rural area!

Recent government policy changes have really hung wind out to dry. But MPs care about what their post says - they need a mailbag of supportive letters so they'll stand up for wind in parliament.

Our research shows three quarters of people back wind. But when asked how many others support it, most of us think we’re in a minority. Talking about how much you love wind is an easy way to start to change that! 


The Small Wind Co-op are planning to build a community owned wind turbine on Troed y Bryn farm, mid-Wales. It'll be owned by ordinary people. You can invest from £100 - and get a return on your investment for the next 20 years.

Remember: when you invest in community energy (or anything else), your capital is at risk. So be smart – don't invest more than you can afford to lose, and always consult a professional if you're not sure.
