Wind turbine plan for city hospital

Plans have been submitted to install an 80-metre wind turbine to provide energy for Derby City General Hospital.

The hospital has applied to the city council for permission to build the turbine on land at Manor Park, near residential street Northmead Drive, which is opposite the hospital's grounds, north of a former allotment site.

A spokesman claimed the turbine could produce 11.9% of the hospital's total electricity usage, reducing CO2 levels by 2150 tonnes a year - which is the equivalent output of 350 homes.

Derby City Council said the plans were currently part of a public consultation which closes on January 9, but added that so far there had been no opposition for the proposals.
