Green energy investor Thrive Renewables and gas and electricity supplier Bristol Energy have unveiled an agreement to power almost 3,000 homes from two onshore wind farms – in Aberdeenshire and Suffolk. The companies have inked a tie-up for almost 3.6 megawatts (MW) of renewable electricity from sources including the 800-kilowatt Auchtygills turbine near Strichen, which can provide capacity for 700 households. Thrive’s 2.75MW turbine at Ness Point will provide enough energy for 2,225 UK homes.
