As the Autumn winds gather strength, our 10kW wind turbine has this week passed a significant generation milestone. Since the turbine was connected on October 30th 2012, it has generated 100,000kWh of electricity. That is enough to power the average UK household for over 21 years!
Being our first community energy project PCP are pleased to confirm that despite some initial teething problems, the turbine is performing slightly ahead of our business plan projections. Our Community Fund has to date given away £2,800 to local projects, including £1,400 to the Community Foundation for Calderdale Flood Relief Fund.
Together with installing a solar array on Colden Junior and Infant School, we are currently working towards our next share offer which will we hope to launch in the upcoming weeks. Please like us on Facebook and check back here to receive the latest updates.
