Meeting scheduled for wind turbine plans

By Alison Burkinshaw Wednesday 5th March 2014

A PUBLIC meeting is going to be held to hear residents thoughts about the construction of a wind turbine near Grimethorpe and Cudworth.

The wind turbine which will cost £1m, is going to be owned by the people of Cudworth, Grimethorpe and Shafton in a co-operative scheme.

The turbine will generate enough electricity to power 370 households, but the power will be sold directly back to the National Grid.

The meeting will be held at the New Options Gym, St Luke's Road, Grimethorpe, on Thursday March 13 at 7.30pm.
