Onshore-Sites in Great Britain

Bradwell

In January 2010, we received consent from the Planning Inspectorate to build a 10 turbine wind farm development near Bradwell-on-Sea in Essex.

Construction of the wind farm started in early 2012, with all 10 turbines becoming fully operational in September 2013.

Bradwell Wind Farm has a total generating capacity of 20.5 megawatts (MW). It is estimated that the average annual generation expected at the site could be equivalent to the approximate domestic needs of up to 12,000 average UK households1

Why is wind power important?

  • Wind will not run out.
  • Wind farms provide electricity without producing harmful gas emissions that contribute to global warming and climate change.
  • Wind farms do not rely on importing fossil fuels and so contribute to the security of our energy supply.
  • Wind farms are sustainable developments i.e. they meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
  • The wind energy industry has created hundreds of thousands of jobs across the UK and will continue to create opportunities well into the future.

1 Energy predicted to be generated by the proposal is derived using wind speeds monitored in the local area and correlating to a Met. Office station providing longer term data. The calculations are based on an installed capacity of  20.5 MW.  The energy capture predicted and hence derived homes equivalent or emissions savings figures may change as further data are gathered.
Equivalent homes supplied is based on an annual electricity consumption per home of 4700 kWh. This figure is supported by recent domestic electricity consumption data available from The Digest of UK Energy Statistics and household estimates and projections from the UK Statistics Authority.
