The Big Field Wind Farm

It’s nearly decision time for The Big Field Wind Farm, Good Energy’s latest project in Cornwall to deliver more renewable electricity to UK homes.

Our planning application for this 11-turbine wind farm is due to be determined by Cornwall Council’s Strategic Planning Committee on Thursday October 23.

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. We’re proud of the proposal and think it deserves to become a reality. We hope you do too.

Follow the links on this page for more information about The Big Field Wind Farm and the benefits it could bring to the local community, the environment and the economy.

There’s still time to show your support. So if you believe in what Good Energy is trying to achieve with this project, please submit your views to Cornwall Council. It will only take a few minutes and could make all the difference.

Thank you.
