Tween Bridge is home to a 22 turbine wind farm, a project that was agreed in 2008 after a joint public enquiry with Keadby Wind Farm (A project owned by Renewable Energy Solutions).
The wind farm is expected to make a significant contribution towards UK Government targets for renewable generation. We believe the Tween Bridge scheme has numerous advantages as a wind farm location such as a significant wind resource and it being close to a suitable connection into the electricity grid. In 2015, the wind farm met around 30,000 homes annual electricity needs.*
The Tween Bridge wind farm provides a community fund towards worthwhile local projects and initiatives. This fund provides approximately £1.25 million for the benefit of local people. You can find out more about the community fund at South Yorkshire's Community Foundation.
