City's wind turbine bid approved  

Manchester City’s football stadium will become the first in the world to be solely powered by renewable energy after an application to install a wind turbine was approved by city councillors.

The 85-metre-high Ecotricity wind turbine, which includes a viewing platform and a “green energy” classroom, will be built at the clubs City of Manchester Stadium in the east of the city.

Designed by celebrated architect, Sir Norman Foster, it will be one of the tallest wind turbines in western Europe, with the blade tip reaching 120 metres, dwarfing the nearby 56 metre high B of the Bang sculpture.
