We teamed up with B&Q on an exciting project powering their main distribution centre in Worksop with 100% green energy.
We installed one large wind turbine that does the job. It provides enough green electricity for the whole site, as well as enough to send additional renewable energy into the grid.
This project sailed through the planning process with widespread community backing receiving comments like "we need more than one". A testament to our ‘Good Neighbour’ policy – and the overwhelming public support for using wind energy to tackle climate change.
