Vince hails 'last English wind farm' image

Ecotricity has started commercial operations at the three-turbine Alveston wind farm in Gloucestershire, which company founder Dale Vince claims could be the last onshore project in England. 

Vince said: “It’s always great to build another wind park and put it into operation. This one is a little bittersweet because without a change of government, or government policy, this could be the last one built in England.

    “Current government policy, to prevent new wind parks in England makes no sense and is a political choice – because onshore energy isn’t just good for the environment, it makes good economic sense too.”

    The company also has planning permission to build a 10MW battery storage project at the site to share the a connection with the wind farm.
