An English community is expected to cash-in on a Gaia-Wind turbine

February 03, 2012

A community wind turbine is estimated to generate £5000 profit per year for a Suffolk village.

An innovative eco-friendly project that will see profits from the sale of electricity generated by a wind turbine ploughed back into the community has taken a giant step forward.

Suffolk Coastal District Council has given the green light to a proposal put forward by Cookpole Energy Action (CEA).

The not for profit organisation, made up of residents from Cookley and Walpole, near Halesworth, has been granted permission to install a wind turbine at Rockstone Manor Farm in Cookley.

The 11Kw Gaia (133) wind turbine, which would be 24.8m tall, is expected to cost around £50,000 and the electricity generated – estimated to be about 20,000Kw hours a year – would be fed into the national grid.

CEA members hope this will result in an annual profit of around £5,000 which will be invested into other eco-friendly projects within the parish.
