Wind farm

Boardinghouse wind farm

Project location

The five-turbine Boardinghouse wind farm in Cambridgeshire was completed in 2015 and has an annual forecast to produce over 30 million units of green electricity every year - enough to meet the demand of over 7,500 UK homes.

In the summer of 2016 we were delighted to host the Thrive Renewables Annual General Meeting in the nearby town of March and take a selection of our shareholders to see the Boardinghouse wind farm which their investment had made possible.

Project summary

Today, Thrive Renewables owns a 75 per cent stake in the project which was an investment to fill a gap between the developer and landowner’s funds and the overall cost of the project. The deal allowed the project to be built and to keep the developer and landowner involved to contribute their early experience through construction and on into operations.
