The Scottish Executive this week launched a project that will involve rooftop wind turbines being attached to five primary schools. Wee Tam vowed to bring in his catapult the morn's morn…

The Scottish deputy enterprise minister, Lewis Macdonald, was at Collydean primary school, Glenrothes, on Tuesday to watch the first installation of the Swift wind turbine, made by Scottish company Renewable Devices

Other Fife schools will be fitted with the turbines and, if this pilot project proves successful, the turbines could appear on buildings across Scotland.

Macdonald said: “This is an exciting development and I’m delighted that a leading edge Scottish company is at the forefront of this research.”

The Scottish Executive said it would increase the amount of electricity in Scotland produced by renewable energy to 40% by 2020.
