The Concept

  • The Kettering Energy Park will generate enough electricity to satisfy nearly all of the areas’ current and future requirements. Phase one, known as the Burton Wold Wind Extension, will see the installation of nine high efficiency GE turbines that will produce enough power for 11,000 homes. Phase two will see the installation of a solar array
  • The Energy Park will act as enabling development for existing consented schemes within Kettering that have to meet renewable energy targets (typically planning consents now require increasing amounts of energy to come from renewable sources)
  • The Energy Park provides a direct benefit to the community in that it provides a resilient and robust supply of electricity for all domestic, commercial and municipal purposes
  • The Energy Park provides a dedicated area for high energy users and consumers
