Gloucestershire locals empowered

Accompanied by intense press interest, a second MW-scale Enercon turbine was installed last month near Great Yarmouth in Norfolk by one of the NexGen group of companies. The E66 1.5 MW turbine was transported from Enercon in Germany on 12 trucks and took four days for Next Generation to construct on site. It will provide 5% of Great Yarmouth's domestic electricity needs, enough power for over 4000 local people, says the company. The project won planning permission on appeal. "Put simply, it would be a big feature in the landscape but one that is slim, elegant and well designed for its setting," said appeal Inspector Keith Durrant when he allowed the project. NexGen's Dale Vince was born in Great Yarmouth. The first Enercon in Norfolk is sited at nearby Swaffham.
