Onshore wind farm

Stags Holt

Facts and figures

Wind farm location South-west of Coldham, Cambridgeshire, England
Commissioned in 2007
Electrical output (gross) 18 MW
Number of units 9 turbines
Turbine height 100 metres to blade tip

The Stags Holt onshore wind farm, which went into operation in 2007, is one of the pioneering wind power projects in the UK. Planning permission for the nine turbines of Stags Holt wind farm was issued by Fenland District Council in September 2005. The project was originally developed by TXU and taken over by E.ON in December 2002. Construction of the wind farm began in 2006 and was completed towards the end of 2007.

The United Kingdom has a wealth of experience and expertise in the field of wind power like no other nation. Stags Holt has a gross electrical output of 18 megawatts and supplies around 10,000 households with electricity each year. The climate-neutral energy of Stags Holt alone saves over 2,300 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per year.

The Stags Holt onshore wind farm makes a particularly important contribution to achieving the state targets for renewable energies in the eastern region. The region in which Stags Holt is located is to generate a total of up to 460 megawatts from wind power.

The site in Cambridgeshire is suitable for the construction and operation of wind turbines from several points of view:

  • The region is considered a good, reliable wind resource.
  • Stags Holt's remote location means there is no significant noise pollution or negative visual impact.
  • The available grid connection capacity meets requirements.
