The annual output from this site, on average will produce 1,624,000 units of clean electricity. That is enough to provide the complete annual requirements of 400 local homes. This is the equivalent to 4 villages the size of Nympsfield, 20% of the town of Nailsworth and 1% of the entire district of Stroud
The electricity provided by this wind turbine is totally pollution free. This electricity displaces that from conventional sources and this provides significant reductions in pollution which are listed below
1398 tonnes of CO2
16 tonnes of SO2
5 tonnes of NOx
These gases contribute to Global Warming, Climate change and Acid rain.
Plus several tons of slag and ash, or Nuclear waste, and all pollution resulting from the mining, transport and processing of fossil fuels or Nuclear fuels.
Since the electricity from this site is used by local households and businesses there is a further saving of losses incurred in the National Grid when electricity is moved up and down the country. Wind power is locally produced and used.
All the energy used in the manufacture of this wind turbine and it's transporttation, site preperation and erection, will be replaced by the energy supplied here in the first 6 months of operation. The next 20-30 years will see a net benefit of up to 36 million units of electricity with NO pollution produced at all.
