About The Project

Planning permission was granted in 2009 for five turbines on land at the restored Bilsthorpe Colliery in Nottinghamshire and since then, a process to procure the wind turbines and prepare the site for construction has been taking place.

Construction of the access tracks and foundations began in June 2012 and the turbines were erected in April 2013.

The wind farm, which is planned for operation in June 2013, is expected to generate enough electricity to meet the needs of over 6,000 homes, making a contribution to securing the nation’s energy supply whilst reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The wind farm will also create employment and once up and running, it will provide a local community fund.
