Alveston, Gloucestershire

Alveston wind park in South Gloucestershire, is the first of its kind in the area and something we are really proud of. It’s made up of three beautiful wind turbines generating a massive 6.9 MW of green electricity between them, enough power for over 2000 homes. 

This is a vital step towards creating a green Britain, securing our future energy needs from a local renewable source - the wind.
