The first of a new generation of farm-scale wind turbines has been installed on a farm at Liskeard in Cornwall by Wetherby-based farm turbine specialist Earthmill.
The first Endurance X29 to be installed on UK soil, and also the first to be built in the UK, was commissioned last week and is now generating power for Matthew Rowe’s Great Tredinnick dairy farm, up to 500,000 kWh per year, the equivalent of the power consumption of 150 homes.
Earthmill, one of the UK’s only specialist farm-scale wind turbine installers and suppliers, is also one of a handful of authorised suppliers that can install the Endurance X29 in the UK. The 225kW unit was built by Endurance Wind Power at its new factory in Hartlebury near Kidderminster.
