The Big Field Wind Farm

The Big Field Wind Farm in north Cornwall is one of Good Energy’s latest proposals for generating more renewable electricity for UK homes.

We are currently reviewing the options for the project after our planning application was refused by Cornwall Council’s Strategic Planning Committee. 

We think the Big Field Wind Farm is a really important project for building energy security in Cornwall and the UK as whole, and for helping global efforts to tackle climate change.

Follow the links on this page for more information about our proposal and the benefits we think it could bring to the local community, the environment and the economy.

We’ll be updating these pages with further news about the project in due course, but if you’d like to get in touch in the meantime please e-mail Thank you.

Take a look below at our short film on what young people in Cornwall think about wind energy.
