Energy from wind
More than 5000 sites across the Severn Trent region were assessed for their wind power potential and only the best were selected for development.
We currently have four 130m-tall wind turbines at our Derby, Newthorpe and Wanlip sewage treatment sites. Each turbine generates enough electricity to power around 1500 homes. In total, our current wind turbines can produce 20,000 MWh every year. At present this power is exported to the National Grid, but future turbines will power our own sites.
