Look up for a power plan
TREVOR Morgan (Have Your Say, October 2) points to an energy solution that might satisfy anti-wind and anti-nuclear campaigners.
There is indeed a potential alternative on our doorsteps — or to be more precise, on our rooftops — in the form of micro-generation.
If every householder, business, local authority and community group were to take responsibility for their power needs by installing an appropriate mix of solar panels and wind generators on properties they might own, there would be no need for either wind farms or nuclear power stations in Wales.
This, combined with suitably located hydro, wave and tidal generators, should allow Wales to become self-sufficient in electricity production within a decade, and create jobs.

Large-scale development of micro-generation would also reverse the current power structure with individuals and communities selling electricity to multi-national corporations rather than the other way around.
If local councils were to lead the way by developing the renewable energy generation potential of buildings within their control, this would reduce council tax and set an example for others to follow.
