Our mission is to reduce the UK’s reliance on fossil fuels and it is great to see that we are not alone. The owners of a farm and family park have taken full advantage of the renewable technologies on offer and now produce 80 per cent of their business’ energy consumption.
We use coal displacement figures to demonstrate the positive impact of wind power and David and Felicity Brown have reduced their carbon footprint by an impressive 58 tonnes a year!
Along with solar panels and a biomass system, the farm makes use of a 10kW wind turbine which means they only draw from the National Grid on very dull days or when there is no wind.
That’s certainly put us in a good mood for the weekend. Let’s hope it’s a windy one!
