The Area Info;

Average wind speed = 8m/s (this is quite high)

Average sunshine = 4hr/day

Resources available = estimated 10million tonnes of coal from local coalmines over next 20 years.

The dam at Loscoe is 50 metres above surrounding land and is fed with 5million gallons of water daily via local small river.

Local farms produce 15000 tonnes of waste plant / animal matter yearly.

Proposed Site
