Temple Hill Wind Farm
Since 2010, we have been investigating the possibility of a five turbine wind farm, known as Temple Hill, on land located north of Grantham, between Stubton and Brandon.
Following the decision in March by South Kesteven District Council to refuse planning permission for the proposed Temple Hill Wind Farm and subsequent review, RWE Innogy UK can confirm that, it will not be appealing this decision. The proposed development of the project, on land located north of Grantham, between Stubton and Brandon, will not be progressed further.
The proposed development at Temple Hill would have made a significant investment into the local area of approximately £4.6 million1, and been capable of producing clean home-grown energy for approximately 7,000 homes2, allowing South Kesteven to generate renewable electricity more in line with its consumption.
 Figures are based on a wind farm with an installed capacity of 12.5MW and are for the 25 year lifecycle of the wind farm. The ‘Renewable UK: Onshore Wind –Direct and Wider economic impacts (2012) has been used to calculate this figure.
 Energy predicted to be generated by the scheme is derived using available flows monitored at the site and applying trends from RWE Innogy UK's existing hydro portfolio located across the UK and the predicted station efficiency. Long term energy output predictions are based on operational data analysis, where sufficient information is available, or estimated using measured river flow data. The energy capture and equivalent homes or emission savings figures may change as more operational information is gathered.
Equivalent homes supplied is based on an annual electricity consumption per home of 4500 kWh. This figure is supported by recent domestic electricity consumption data available from The Digest of UK Energy Statistics and household figures from the UK Statistics Authority.
