Quickly commissioned project: Construction completed within seven months

Successful October 2010 saw the end of construction and connection of Haswell Moor wind farm in County Durham. The wind farm is home to five 2 MW turbines, which stand 110 m tall to the tip of the blade. In 2015, Haswell Moor produced enough clean energy to power around 7,500 homes each year.* Prior to construction there was archaeological interest in the site, and as a result we appointed Durham University to carry out a detailed investigation before compiling a full report on the wind farm location. Construction started in April 2010 and finished in October 2010.

We have invested over £80,000 since 2011 from our community fund that have benefited local community projects. More information about the community benefit fund is available on the County Durham Community Foundation website.

*Based on an annual average domestic household consumption of 4,115kWH.
