England's (joint) most powerful wind turbine at Checkley Wood off the A5 is now generating electricity. It is a 4.1 MW turbine, and in its first week of operation generated over 177,000 kWh of power.
South West Bedfordshire MP, Andrew Selous, visited the control room in the base of the tower last week to see for himself.
Commenting, Andrew Selous MP said:
"This turbine had local support at the planning stage, and I am pressing the Government to bring forward community benefit schemes to allow local people to benefit from cheaper electricity bills for hosting this important infrastructure. I am also looking forward to seeing the turbine supply the new electric vehicle charging station on the A5 next to it soon."
