Green light for Lincolnshire wind farm

The Department for Energy and Climate Change (Decc) has approved energy firm Ecotricity’s plans to build a 66MW wind farm in East Heckington, Lincolnshire.

The project is expected to cost up to £100M to install and will provide enough electricity to power over 39,000 homes per year.

“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,” said a Decc spokesman.

Work will not begin until the impact of the wind farm on radar systems has been assessed which is expected to take two years.
