Locals' wind farm plans delayed  

http://news.bbc.co.uk/

A multi-million pound community-owned wind farm project has been delayed by two years due to global demand for eco-friendly energy schemes.

Funds of £4 million were raised to build five turbines at Watchfield, Oxon, through a local share scheme.

The Westmill Co-operative had planned to supply power to homes by 2007.

Despite the turbine suppliers changing the delivery time due to demand, the group said they are optimistic the farm will be built in the next few years.

They secured a bank loan to put up the wind turbines after securing the investment from shareholders.

The company’s preferred supplier of the wind turbines has said it does not expect to deliver them until 2009.

Residents within a 50-mile (80.4km) radius of the Watchfield site were given preference in taking up shares, for a minimum £250 investment.

The scheme is planned to supply power to 2,500 homes over 25 years.
