North-east farmer Michael Manners, who has installed an energy-saving wind turbine on his land, is hosting an open day for the benefit of other farmers and land owners across the North who want to know more about possible cost savings from wind-generated electricity.
The free event at Coniscliffe Grange, Darlington, takes place on Tuesday, May 6, and will showcase the latest technology available specialist farm-scale wind turbine installer and supplier Earthmill.
“People often complain about our weather, but the North-east has strong consistent winds that make it ideal for generating energy from wind,” said Earthmill’s managing director, Steve Milner.
“We have had a lot of requests from farmers in the North-east wanting to see one of our new turbines in action and this open day allows famers to talk to each other and share their views and experiences.
“It’s also a great opportunity for farmers to talk to people about the process and likely savings and chat to our team of experts about their farm’s wind energy needs.”
Bookings for the open day can be made by calling Earthmill on 01937 581011 when specific directions to the event will be given.
