Hockerton's community-owned wind turbineThe media continue to follow the progress of our community-owned wind turbine with interest, and today BBC Nottingham provides an online update.

So far the turbine has generated over 240,000Kwh of electricity (latest figures from end of December 2010), the equivalent to saving the emission of 136 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.

The energy generated to date is worth approximately £54,000 and Sustainable Hockerton is hoping to pay investors a return of 5% for its first year of operation, with remaining monies funding sustainable projects in the village.
