The North East’s latest onshore wind farm is generating clean green electricity after the successful completion of testing and commissioning work.
Banks Renewables has taken official possession of the new £17.5m Moor House wind farm near Darlington from main contractor,Hall Construction Services Ltd.
This comes after the scheme’s six turbines were fully energised. The County Durham-based firm is encouraging more groups and causes in nearby communities to make applications to the £750k community benefits fund linked to Moor House after it also went live.
Lewis Stokes, community relations manager at The Banks Group, said: “A huge amount of excellent work has been done by our project and contractor teams on the Moor House wind farm, and it’s fantastic to see it all now come to fruition.
“Banks Renewables is one of the UK’s leading owner-operators in the onshore wind sector, and as a longstanding County Durham business, we’re especially proud to start generating even more clean green electricity within our home region.”
