Wind turbine developer guide

Opportunities for turbine development on all scales,

Blackburn with Darwen, in common with most authority areas in the south and west Pennines, has areas which experience highly favourable conditions for wind turbine development.

The combination of large areas of open upland, consistent wind conditions and relative proximity to core infrastructure presents opportunities for turbine development on all scales, from small scale individual generators supplying electricity to a single farm, to large scale commercial wind farms providing significant amounts of power to the national grid.
