Although several energy suppliers have been backing away from wind farm investment, major communications company BT has said it will push ahead with its plans.
The company told BusinessGreen.com earlier this year that it might have to reconsider its plans to invest in a £250 million project, partly because the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) would not enable it to receive renewable energy subsidies.
Earlier this week, however, the firm said it would wait for the autumn results of the CRC study before making a final decision on the project that could generate a quarter of the UK's energy needs within seven years.
Ian Livingstone, chief executive of BT, told the website: "[BT's action] has seen our UK carbon footprint fall by 58 per cent since 1996 and prevented more than 27,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being emitted last year."
By 2020, the company intends to have cut its carbon emissions by 80 per cent from what it was producing in 1997.
Offshore wind farms tend to be more popular than their onshore counterparts as they are further away from populated areas and have a reduced visual impact.
