BT is planning to build a series of wind farms that will meet 25% of its UK electricity needs by 2016, the telecoms company has announced.
The £250 million project will see turbines installed on or adjacent to BT-owned parcels of land across the UK, for example radio mast sites, that could generate 250mw of electricity a year.
BT confirmed it has applied for planning permission for test masts at its sites at Wideford Hill Radio Station in Orkney, Scousburgh Radio Station in Shetland and Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station in Cornwall.
