 Harlock Hill Wind Farm has been owned and operated by the community based Baywind Energy Co-operative since 1997 and was Britain's first co-operatively owned wind power roject.The current turbines are being replaced so this 'walk and talk' is a final chance to see the five old 500kW turbines before they are replaced with five new 2.3MW turbines: two on  Harlock Hill and three located on nearby land.. It is anticipated that the amount of green electricity produced would be quadrupled.  This event follows on from the Beckside event at 2pm.
