Facts and figures
Tween Bridge wind farm, also known as Tween Bridge Moor, was commissioned in 2012 and is located some 17 kilometres north-east of central Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England. It consists of 22 Vestas V90/2000 wind turbines with a combined rated output of 44 MW. The wind farm, which was launched as a rather small project, was built after a joint public survey on the Keadby wind farm was positive in 2008.
The wind farm was expected to make a significant contribution to achieving the UK government's renewable energy targets. Tween Bridge has many advantages as a wind farm location, for example a significant wind resource and proximity to a suitable grid connection. In 2015, the wind farm supplied around 30,000 households annually with electricity.
The Tween Bridge wind farm provides a community fund for valuable local projects and initiatives. This fund provides around £1.25 million for the local population. To find out more about the community fund, please contact South Yorkshire's Community Foundation.
