TALLENTIRE WIND FARM
Tallentire Wind Farm is currently under construction. Please use the links on the left to find out more about the construction plan for the project and how we are progressing.
RES was given planning consent to erect six wind turbines on Tallentire Hill, near Cockermouth in Cumbria, in February 2011. We have taken great care to design a project which will maximise the social and environmental benefits on a local and global scale, through the generation of clean, green electricity, while making sure than any potential negative effects are kept to a minimum. The design of the wind farm has been based on information gathered from a number of detailed scientific surveys and site investigations. We have designed a wind farm which will have a low impact on the surrounding communities and environment, high electricity production, and long-term community benefits. The proposed Tallentire Wind Farm is designed to produce sufficient electricity to meet the average annual demand of more than 7,700 households.
The location of the Tallentire Wind Farm is shown below.
