Celebrating 25 years of wind power in the United Kingdom!
Delabore Wind Farm in North Cornwall was the 1st commercial wind farm in the United Kingdom and back on December 21st 2016 it turned 25! That's a quarter of a century!
On 21st December 25 years ago Peter Edwards switched on the wind farm and then in 2002 Good Energy brought the wind farm from the Edwards family. In 2010. Good Energy invested in replacing 10 small wind turbines for 4 larger, powerful ones. This increased the capacity of the site to 9.2MW.
To the date of it 25th birthday, Delabore Wind Farm has created enough power to boil 3.4 Billion kettles. Now that is a lot of brews!
