BT considering Lancashire wind farm

BT considering Lancashire wind farm
Telecoms giant BT is set to consult on the construction of a "small wind power development" in Lancashire.

The firm, which claims to be one of the UK's largest consumers of electricity, is considering putting up two wind turbines at a site at Fanny Hill Farm.

Already home to a communications tower, the site near Heysham could generate enough electricity to meet the equivalent of the needs of 2,000 homes.

However, before the wind farm is built, the company is to put plans through a consultation phase.

Andy Riley, head of partnership development for BT's wind farms project, said: "We envisage a two turbine proposal for the site and are consulting with all relevant statutory bodies."

He added: "We will also consult fully with the local community throughout the planning process and ensure this project is in keeping with BT's strong reputation as an environmentally responsible company."

As part of the consultation process, the company will be holding a two-day public exhibition in the area in November.

If the wind farm gets the go ahead, it could help the company meet its carbon emissions targets as well as insulating it from the steep energy rises experienced this year.
