This was also the first wind project we built with more than one turbine.
OK, not that many more than one…
Two turbines, to be precise, and of the smaller variety - at a water treatment works belonging to Anglian Water.
Building the first windmills in any part of the UK is always a pleasure – it gets green energy on the local agenda and provides an active reminder of how we need to power our future.
These were also the first wind turbines to be built in response to the Governments new Renewables Obligation - launched in 2001.
