Ecotricity History - 2006

Big in the two areas that matter most. The number of homes we supplied grew by a pretty staggering 10,000, meaning we were now powering nearly 23,000 homes with our Green Electricity. And we built a further eight windmills. Six more at our existing site in Lincolnshire, bringing the total at this one farm to 16 – and two more turbines as part of our Merchant Wind Power scheme (our fifth now) – this time in Dundee, powering Michelin’s tire factory.

So that’s Diesel engines for Ford and tyres for Michelin (not to forget cold storage for Sainsbury’s and offices for the Pru) now made using wind power. Pretty good progress we thought.
