For almost 20 years, Baywind owned six turbines. Five were decommissioned in 2016, to make way for two new high powered turbines belonging to successor High Winds Community Energy Co-operative. At the end of life of the remaining turbine the site will be taken over by High Winds.www.baywind.coop
Hydro and biomass sites
The co-operative has operated a wood chip fuelled district heating system on the Springbok Estate near Alfold, Surrey since June 2015. Prior to installation of the biomass system the heating was supplied by approximately 20 oil boilers, some of which were quite old and inefficient. www.springbokwoodheat.co.uk/
