Go-ahead given for five 100m wind turbines  

Credit:  Western Morning News | www.thisiscornwall.co.uk 6 October 2012 ~~

Five of the tallest wind turbines in Cornwall may be built at St Breock Downs after an energy company was granted planning consent to erect them.

Renewable Energy Generation Limited (REG) has won approval for the 100-metre-high structures from Cornwall Council’s Strategic Planning Committee.

The five new turbines will replace 11 presently on the site which were erected in 1994. The new structures will be almost twice their height. In return for planning permission, REG will set up a community benefit fund for local projects which could result in £1.25 million being released over the next 25 years, the lifetime of the new turbines.
