New Wind Turbines to Generate Huge Savings

New Wind Turbines to Generate Huge Savings
Authorities at the Mount Pleasant military base (MPC) have confirmed their interest in developing a wind farm that could bring the Falkland Islands Government (FIG) considerable benefits.  It is planned that the Power and Electrical Section of the Public Service Department, will install the turbines at Mount Pleasant, and the Ministry of Defence will pay FIG for the energy used.  This move would also benefit MPC, with savings on fuel, and helping meet energy saving targets.  The Wind Farm, near the Sand Bay Abattoir, saved £600,000 last year alone, providing 26% of Stanley™s electricity.  (Penguin News)
