Iskra (a locally based manufacturer) has been very busy in Nottinghamshire this year installing their new wind turbine, including two in Rushcliffe Country Park and one at HHP. At HHP, the 26m tower was raised first, and the turbine was added a few weeks afterwards.
The HHP decided to install the wind turbine in order to meet the ‘Zero CO2’ requirements of the new community building and planning permission was granted earlier this year for a 5kW rated turbine.
This December the 2nd wind turbine at HHP has begun generating green energy. It is estimated to produce 12,000kWhrs per annum.
