Green light for Lincolnshire wind project

Ecotricity have been granted permission by Government to construct a 66MW wind farm in East Heckington, Lincolnshire.

The developer estimates that the turbines will provide enough electricity to power the equivalent of as many as 39,700 homes a year.

A Department of Energy and Climate Change spokesman said:

“Onshore wind has an important role to play as part of a balanced energy mix. This development will enhance our energy security and help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”
