Lord&Hunt - Professional Farmers and Agricultural Contractors


Earls Hall Wind Farm

Aerial View of Earls Hall Farm Windfarm5 turbines were erected in 2012, with fulltime generation commencing early 2013. The turbines are 125m high, and need at least 4m/s of wind to generate power, with optimum generation achieved at wind speeds of 12m/s and above. The land used is leased to BayWa, a German agricultural company specializing in renewable energy. The layout of the turbines was influenced by the prevailing wind, and as a result some field shapes have been modified, although the land lost is minimal. Any awkward corners as well as the land around the turbine bases has been planted up with wild flower mixes and entered in to our Environmental stewardship scheme.

We currently have installed 14 kW of solar panels on grain stores spread over two sites, providing green energy for our own use, with any excess being sold back to the national grid.
