Feature turbines

Unfortunately for Denise Davis (Letters, 7 July), being such a large country the United States’ attitude to wind power and tourism not mixing doesn’t hold everywhere.

I recently visited Palm Springs in the scorching heat of the desert south-west and was amazed to see hundreds of wind turbines on the city limits making great use of the landscape, which creates a natural wind tunnel. A smaller area of solar panels was also benefiting from the endless sunshine.

They do not appear to be putting off the millions of visitors to the area every year and are a spectacular sight from the surrounding mountains.
