Chris Huhne to reopen Delabole wind farm

The UK’s first commercial wind farm, at Delabole in Cornwall, is due to reopen later after a multimillion-pound redevelopment. The wind farm opened in 1991 with 10 turbines, which stand at 164ft (50m), at the remote site near Wadebridge. Energy Secretary Chris Huhne is due to unveil four more 325ft (99m) turbines, which harness wind more effectively. Potential electricity generated at the site will increase to 9.2 megawatts, enough to power 7,000 homes. Read more here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cornwall-12533687
