Renewable Energy

Community Wind Turbine

The aim of this project was to build a community owned wind turbine, which would generate electricity for sale to the grid. The profits from this project would be reinvested in to the community. The project is currently up and running. The total project cost was within the anticipated region of £750 000. There is considerable scope for the development within the renewables sector, using a range of technologies and energy sources.
