In November 2015, we erected our first wind turbine, T1. The nacelle is 63m tall with the tip of the blades reaching 100m. It is a modern gearless low-noise design which produces 1.5MW of electricity. To watch the timelapse video of the turbine being erected please click here →
This turbine produces enough electricity to supply the total energy needs of 1500 houses, and will do so for the next 20 years. The site has a good wind resource to capture that energy.
We have planning permission for a 2nd wind turbine on site, ‘T2’, which will have a 125m tip height and therefore a greater power production of 2.5MW. We plan to erect T2 in summer 2017.
