- EDF ER is particularly keen to engage with the local community and provide further information regarding the wind farm proposal. We have offered to meet the Town Council and also local Parish Councils to discuss our proposals and we look forward to meeting in due course. We are currently organising our public exhibitions which are to be held on 4th and 5th July and will publish further details regarding these in the near future.
The exhibitions will include project details and also a 3D visualisation model to enable the local community to understand the impacts of the wind farm proposal.
There will also be EDF ER staff on hand to answer any questions and discuss any concerns that may be raised.
- The wind farm would need to connect to the local electricity grid network. Initial feasibility that has been carried out indicates there are a number of potential connections points although no approach has been made to the local grid operator. At the present moment in time EDF ER is considering undergrounding any electricity export cables from the wind farm site to the grid network.
- EDF ER understands that wind farm proposals can cause uncertainty and concerns among the local community. We seek through our development proposals to balance any local impacts against the need to generate renewable energy and take very seriously the views and comments of the local community. The project is in its very early stages and there is a significant amount of further work that needs to be carried out before a planning application is submitted.
- EDF is committed to developing low carbon energy sources and believe that onshore wind farms play an important role in combating climate change. The EDF group in the UK generate electricity from a wide range of sources including onshore wind farms.
