RSPB goes greener with 100m high wind turbine

29/02/2016

A 100 metre (330ft) high wind turbine is set to start generating power at the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. Construction of the turbine has been completed at the RSPB’s Lodge headquarters near Sandy, Bedfordshire, by energy company Ecotricity and is now expected to generate enough electricity to meet the annual needs of 450 homes. The turbine, which will save an estimated 800 tonnes of carbon emissions a year as it generates the equivalent of half the electricity the RSPB uses across its 127 sites, is part of moves by Europe’s largest nature conservation charity to make its operations greener.
