Hampole

 

Located at Hampole near Doncaster, this four-turbine wind farm has a total generation capacity of 8.2MW, sufficient to power around 5,400 average homes.

Hampole Wind Farm started generating renewable electricity in spring 2014 following a construction programme completed on time and on budget.

By sourcing the turbine towers from the UK, we were able to keep our carbon footprint to a minimum and boost the national economy as well.

For the lifetime of the wind farm, Good Energy will contribute at least £8,200 per year (rising with inflation) to a community fund. This fund is managed by national charity Grantscape on behalf of Good Energy with input on grant allocations from a committee of local representatives.
