Farmer explains onshore windfarm benefits

Farmer explains onshore windfarm benefits
Farmers who lease their land to windfarm developers could stand to make a "substantial profit" in the coming years, the British Wind Energy Association (BWEA) has asserted.

Charles Anglin, director of communications at BWEA claimed that farmers can make as much as £10,000 per megawatt of electricity generated when it is re-sold into the national grid, the Farmers Guardian reported.

The group stated that some of the largest windfarms could generate up to £100,000 in additional revenue each year.

Meanwhile, Andrew King, chairman of Energy4all, said that farmers who are interested in exploring the option of wind energy may wish to engage community interest in the project from the early stages.

In other windfarm news, it emerged this week that a £2 billion offshore windfarm project organised by US firm Fluor and Airtricity could potentially supply enough energy to power 415,000 homes, according to the BBC.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18597727-ADNFCR
