Rampion Windfarm

The Rampion Windfarm off the coast of the Shoreham Beach Local Nature Reserve is now well underway.

The wind farm is between 8 and 16 miles from the shore.

There will be 116 turbines when its finished each standing 142 metres tall. The wind farm will generate enough power for 290,000 homes and replace 600,000 tons of carbon dioxide. Wind turbines harness the (free) and like early sailors wind farms use the naturally occurring winds that blow across the ocean.

The windfarm will be completed by the end of 2018. Renewable energy sources like this are so important to help reduce man-made climate change and great to see this happening on our own doorstep.
