Penny Hill windfarm being built
« on: August 02, 2012, 10:38:46 PM »
As per subject. Despite an opposition campaign from some of the residents of nearby Ulley, work has started in the last couple of weeks on the windfarm. It will be next to the M1 where it meets the M18. It will have six 132m high turbines, probably rated at about 5MW each. They should be a spectacular sight as you drive on the M1/M18. The access road is being built as at Aug 2 2012.

They will cost about £22m and be operational in March 2013. They should generate enough power for about 12,000 homes.
