New wind turbine plans are announced for farm near Byfield

Plans for a wind turbine have been revealed for a farm near Byfield.

MS1 Energy, an energy firm based in London which specialises in building wind farms, is currently putting together a planning application for a single 67 metre turbine to be based at Hill Farm in Byfield.

The firm has said that once the turbine is built, it will have a rated capacity of 500kW, enough to power around 280 homes and alleviate approximately 565 tonnes of carbon a year. It will be situated in excess of 400 metres from neighbouring homes.

Director of MS1 Energy Peter Wolf said: “The Hill Farm project will help to safeguard the lifestyle we enjoy today for current and future generations, by producing low carbon electricity in a sustainable and ethical way.

“The project comes at an opportune time given the decline in the UK’s oil and natural gas production and the threat of climate change. We are keen to engage with the local community to talk about the scheme.”

A public consultation will take place at the lower annexe of Byfield Village Hall from 11am on Saturday, December 8. For further information visit the energy’s firm’s website at www.ms1energy.co.uk.
