Residents seeking to compare energy tariffs in Yorkshire might soon find there are more green options for their power supply.
Industry Today reports that two wind farms in the county will be able to supply green electricity to more than 9,000 homes a year, with a combined capacity of 14 megawatts.
Construction of the sites, one of which is 11 miles from Barnsley and the other located near Doncaster, is due to start this month and completion could be by the end of this year.
Rick Eggleston, managing director of wind turbine supplier REpower UK, explained: "Both these sites are in Yorkshire but the wind conditions are quite different, which is why we are supplying two different products from the same range.
"The REpower MM82 is ideal for windy locations such as the site at Hazlehead. The REpower MM92, with its larger rotor diameter, produces a higher yield on lower wind speed sites and so is better suited to the wind conditions at Marr wind farm," he added.
