Fenland Wind Farms Forefront In Winds Of Change

Wind FarmAhead of a key vote in the European Parliament on renewable energy targets Alex Mayer MEP visited Ransonmoor Wind Farm, near Doddington.

2017 was the greenest year since the Industrial Revolution for the UK, with onshore wind farms and renewable energy sources, like the turbines at Ransonmoor, outproducing coal plants on more than 75% of days of the year. 

The five turbines at the Ransonmoor site, in operation since 2007, produce 26 GWH of electricity per annum, enough to power 6,600 homes for a year.

The Euro MP will meet Matthew Clayton, Managing Director of Thrive renewables to discuss what a stretching but realistic percentage of electricity a country produces should come from renewable sources. 

Ms. Mayer said “It’s great to get to see a wind turbine up close and clear up some of the misconceptions surrounding them. “The success of wind farms in Fenland should be a source of inspiration. I’ll be calling for us to build on our success and step up ambitious targets for renewable energy in 2030.”
