Wind energy developer Partnership for Renewables (PfR) has today opened two 2.3MW wind turbines at Standford Hill Prison on the Isle of Sheppey.
The prison will be paid rent for the turbine. A private line may also be established to provide power directly to the prison.
“I am delighted that we have reached the milestone of our first development project to generate power,” said PfR chief executive Stephen Ainger.
“Standford Hill sets us on the way to achieving our target portfolio of 460MW of onshore wind generating capacity, the majority of which will be delivered in partnership with public bodies.”
