Ness Point wind turbine

Positioned on the most Easterly point of England, Ness Point is powered by North Sea winds.


Project summary

When built in 2005, Ness Point was the largest onshore wind turbine in the UK, earning it the nickname “Gulliver” by locals in Lowestoft. Since we invested in the project, the Orbis Energy Centre has been established next door – a flagship focus for the east of England’s renewables network and home to a range of innovative organisations supporting the sector. Lowestoft is also a hub for servicing the growing number of offshore wind farms in the area. In 2022, Wrentham Village Hall near Ness Point made a successful application to our Community Benefit Programme to install new, energy efficient lighting in their meeting room and store room.
