The proposed Frodsham wind farm could generate enough electricity to meet the needs of 28,500 households - equivalent to more than one-fifth of the homes in Cheshire West and Chester.
Extensive studies have been undertaken on a stretch of land that runs between the Manchester Ship Canal and the M56, and indicate that that it is a good location for a wind farm of 20 turbines.
Each of the 125m turbines would generate 3MW of electricity, and, together provide a total of 60MW installed capacity. Frodsham windfarm would help to deliver more than one-quarter of the 2020 renewable energy target for Cheshire.
On 25 February 2010, Peel Energy submitted a planning application for the Frodsham wind farm to the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), the government body responsible for handling and determining the application.
Over 550 people visited the public exhibitions in November 2009 to find out about our initial proposal. After the success of these exhibitions, a second set of exhibitions is being held in March 2010 to provide information on how the project evolved before submission of the planning application.
