Wind turbine for centre

Have your say

A SECOND wind turbine is being installed at a Sheffield conference centre to generate electricity for the facility.

Green Directions, the new conference and education centre based at Townfield Head Farm near Stannington, Sheffield, has just secured planning permission for the 10 kilowatt Xzeres turbine.

A spokesman said: “Once operational it will mean that the farm’s energy needs will be almost fully met.

“The farm already produces about 17,000 kwh per year from its existing six kilowatt wind turbine and four kilowatt solar array and the new turbine should more than double this, saving around 22 tonnes of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere each year.”
