Community Power Cornwall held an open day event to celebrate the launch of their third community owned turbine. Over 100 people turned up to visit the newly installed turbine.

The turbine provides power to the BF Adventure’s Goodygrane site and the availability of an alternative energy supply has contributed to the provision of electricity needed for heating, hot water and lighting. Community Power Cornwall provides an economic model through which Cornish communities can own and benefit from the development of a small-scale wind turbine.

Renewable energy schemes are more sustainable at a local level when residents and businesses participate. It is encouraging to see people getting involved in wind energy projects and this is the level of enthusiasm needed to take renewable technology to the next level!
