Domestic cheap energy users in the north of England could soon be receiving their power from the country's largest wind farm.
The Northern Echo reported that energy supplier E.ON is considering whether a piece of land in County Durham would be suitable for up to 45 wind turbines, although no application has been submitted yet.
A map and statement put up on E.ON's website by mistake stated: "A site has been identified with the potential to host a wind farm to be known as the Isles. The site is located approximately one mile to the east of Newton Aycliffe and has the potential to accommodate between 25 and 45 turbines," the newspaper noted.
Meanwhile, another of the Big Six energy suppliers has been dealing with wind farms.
Scottish and Southern Energy this month announced the sale of three working wind farms totalling 96.8MW to renewable energy company Infinis.
