Wind farm plans to be submitted

Energy firm Ecotricity is set to submit plans to build four wind turbines at Repberry Cross near Bodmin and Lanivet in Cornwall.

The turbines, which will stand 100m tall, would generate enough electricity to power 19 per cent of homes in North Cornwall.

Wind farms in the south-west have faced opposition in the past and a group has been set up to oppose these latest plans.

But managing director of Ecotricity Dale Vince said: “The world is running out of oil and gas and we can't afford to burn the stuff anyway because of climate change.

“Wind energy is a local resource, it grows here in the UK and we can make our own energy from it, and solve both problems.''
