Have your say

After months of preparation, Lancaster University’s wind turbine has arrived and work is now under way to erect the 100 metre turbine on its Hazelrigg site.

The university was granted planning permission in 2011 to construct the turbine, which it says will lower carbon emission in the area and provide approximately 11-17 per cent (depending on long term average wind speed and site consumption) of the university’s energy requirements.

The turbine site has been prepared by Lancaster company Askam Construction.
