Cornish farmer to host wind energy event
Local livestock farmer, Tim Dart will host the event at Carnwinnick Farm, near St Stephen, on Tuesday, 12th August between 10:30am and 3pm and it is the last in a series of open days organised on farms across Britain by specialist farm-scale wind turbine installers and suppliers Earthmill.
The open day will showcase the Endurance X29, which had its first UK installation in October on a nearby dairy farm in Liskeard, Cornwall and now generates the equivalent electricity used by almost 150 homes.
“Falling farm incomes and rising energy costs have led to an increasing number of farmers considering wind power as an additional source of revenue. Farmers and landowners can effectively future-proof their electricity costs by becoming a green energy generator.”
“The event is a great opportunity for farmers to see a fully installed turbine in action and chat to our team of experts about their farm’s wind energy needs,” said Steve Milner, managing director of Earthmill.
Modest in size, the 225Kw X29 is manufactured in the UK and requires only a 30m mast, which makes it ideal for farms with high power requirements. The generator operates at a low level resistance, allowing the turbine to start producing energy at a wind speed of just 4 m/s.
