Cumbria case study

J Stobart & Sons is a family-run agribusiness based in Hesket-Newmarket, near Wigton in Cumbria. A supplier of animal feed products to the local farming community, J. Stobart & Sons has been an integral part of this rural area in the North-West of England for many years. Producing over 60,000 tonnes of animal feed per annum, the business provides valuable employment and has long been run with sustainability in mind. The client, Peter Stobart, and his family, are among the first pioneers in community wind generation in the UK, having operated wind turbines at their facility for over twenty years.

The business has significant energy needs; approximately 2m units per annum. However, in line with his vision for a sustainable business, Peter wished to ensure that this requirement be met by renewable energy as much as possible. In July 2012, Turbowind Energy supplied and installed a Turbowinds T400-34 400kW wind turbine. The turbine is expected to meet as much as 50% of the business’ energy needs.
