Wind farm development at Delabole enters next phase

UK’s first commercial wind farm welcomes its new turbines

Good Energy, the UK’s leading 100% renewable energy supplier, is currently welcoming the new turbines at its Delabole wind farm, which will be planted one-by-one over the following weeks. The North Cornwall site was the UK’s first commercial wind farm and this development is the next major phase in taking the UK into its second generation of onshore wind power, the 10 old turbines having been successfully decommissioned during previous weeks. 

At double the height and producing more than two and half times the output of their predecessors, the four new turbines are larger and more powerful than the old turbines, helping to put the UK on the path to a 100% renewable future. The old turbines will continue to be used to produce clean, renewable electricity elsewhere in Europe.

Juliet Davenport, founder and CEO of Good Energy, said: “Delabole wind farm is a fantastic example of homegrown energy. We are excited to be taking Delabole into its second generation of onshore wind power. The increased capacity of the new turbines serves to illustrate how successful innovation in this field has been over the last two decades. With projects such as this, the UK moves ever closer to a 100% renewable future.”
Good Energy believes that homegrown electricity produced from a network of independent renewable generators throughout the UK is better for our future energy security as well as helping to cut our carbon emissions. The repowering of Delabole is Good Energy’s first wind farm development project, and will be followed by a pipeline of planned wind farm developments.

On the afternoon of Monday 27th September, local MP Dan Rogerson and Good Energy CEO, Juliet Davenport will be on site at the wind farm and available for interview.  Anyone wishing to visit must let the Good Energy team know in advance due to the strict health and safety measures of the construction site, by emailing Jess – [email protected]; or John - [email protected]; or calling 01249 766770.
