Dalby, Leicestershire

Nine windmills on the land next to the A46 in Leicestershire, generating 13 million units of green electricity a year. That’s 3,400 homes powered by endless wind energy.

A perfect example of how the power of the wind, can not only fight against the climate crisis, create a greener Britain but act as vision of the future.

In the future, we’re hoping to transform the site into a hybrid energy park by adding 18,000 solar panels, enough electricity for another 1,200 homes. Putting the wind and the sun together will give us the best of both worlds. Watch this space.
