Westmill Wind Cluster, Oxon
Planning permission has been granted for five Vesta wind turbines for Westmill Farm in Oxfordshire. The move into green energy is a key part of an overall philosophy of diversification on the farm which began with a move into organic farming some 8 years ago. The development has a NFFO 5 (Non Fossil Fuel Obligation) contract for the output from two turbines - the proposed first phase at the farm which may well have a large element of community (of interest) ownership via a possible joint venture with the WIND FUND. The remaining two turbines hope to include local community owners.
