11 December 2014: ROOS RETURNS TO FULL GENERATION
Roos Wind Farm is back on line and generating renewable electricity following a shut down for maintenance.
Roos's nine turbines can generate up to 17.1 megawatts (MW) of renewable electricity, which for comparison is roughly equivalent to the average annual consumption of 11% of all the homes in the East Riding of Yorkshire.*
The turbines were paused two weeks ago to enable Northern PowerGrid to undertake essential maintenance to the switchgear on site: work which has been completed successfully and according to schedule.
*The homes equivalent figure has been calculated based on the predicted electricity generation of the wind farm and dividing this by the annual average electricity consumption figure of 4229kWh from the Department of Energy and Climate Change 2012. The result has then been compared with 2011 Census data for the number of homes in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
