A wind turbine planned for the Norfolk community of Palgrave has raised hopes of cheap energy bills after rising costs in the region.
To be located at the village hall in the town, which is near Diss, the renewable energy producer failed to win approval for East of England Development Agency funding, but new appeals to the district council could see the turbine up and running.
According to the Eastern Daily Press, proponents of the plan believe it will save £2,500 a year for the community centre, while any excess electricity will be pumped back into the local grid.
John Kilgannon, of the Palgrave Community Council, told the newspaper: "We looked at the alternatives before we went for the wind turbine and this is the most cost effective and potentially the most rewarding."
Poyry AS recently conducted a report on behalf of the European Wind Energy Association, which discovered that wind turbines can reduce electricity prices by between 3 and 23 (£2.60 and £19.90) per megawatt hour.
