Eye wind farm

5MW wind project providing clean power to a family-run, local employer in Suffolk.


Project summary

Based on the Airfield Industrial Estate on the outskirts of Eye in Mid-Suffolk, this 5MW wind project provides clean electricity to a big local employer, the Roy Humphrey Group, who were eager to better manage their energy costs and support renewable energy generation in the process. The project also makes an annual contribution to Mid-Suffolk District Council which is distributed to worthwhile community initiatives. Following the construction of the two Thrive turbines in 2013, another developer built a further two turbines nearby a year later, highlighting the excellent wind resource in the area.

Through our Community Benefit Programme, we are pleased to have helped a number of thriving community hubs in the area improve their energy efficiency. One of these spaces is Debenham Shed, which aims to improve mental health for retired men and women who may otherwise struggle with loneliness or isolation, by providing workshop facilities with tools and materials for people to connect, converse and create. Debenham Shed applied for our Community Benefit Programme in 2023 so that they could improve heating and insulation in order to continue running the workshop safely and comfortably throughout the winter.
