While many people in the UK may look to switch energy supplier to a firm that could provide cheap electricity from wind power, there is also growing opposition to the technology.
This is according to a study by the Guardian, which revealed opinions in the UK have become "sharply polarised" over the last two years.
Although 60 per cent of Brits say they favour the use of wind power in their area, the number of people who are strongly opposed to a new development being built close to them has risen from seven per cent in spring 2010 to 21 per cent in 2012.
Professor Patrick Devine-Wright from the University of Exeter said: "It is quite worrying for the government as attitudes are hardening on both sides. This suggests it will be hard to reach any kind of societal consensus."
However, the poll also revealed opposition has grown to the construction of new coal or nuclear plants within five miles of a person's home.
This is despite the UK signing a new deal with France recently to develop new nuclear facilities in the UK, a move that was criticised as "unnecessary" by Friends of the Earth.
