50kw wind turbine planned

The Trust has submitted a planning application to install a 50kw wind turbine on Scarista common grazings. The Harbon turbine will be approx 33m to blade tip which is about twice the height of 2 existing 5kw turbines in the area.

The Trust is proposing this project in order to assist it in becoming self-sustaining with a predicted revenue of £45,000/year before running costs and borrowing charges. If planning permission is granted it is hoped to install the turbine in summer 2013.
