How many tonnes of greenhouse emissions will it take to build them?

Some rough research on the web indicates that the greenhouse gas savings from wind power result in a payback of the embedded energy in the manufacture and installation of a wind farm in the order of 1 year or less. Therefore one would assume that approximately 700,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases will be emitted during the Collgar wind farm construction. The construction of a coal fired power station will also result in a large amount of emissions prior to the plant being commissioned.
