This picture was taken around the Fairburn Wind Farm. All 20 turbines for the 40 megawatt (MW) wind farm have now been delivered and erected, with the first power set to be generated from early next year.

Scottish and Southern Energy is investing £50 million in the Fairburn wind farm. Construction began in February and, once complete, Fairburn will add to the 2,000MW of renewable generation capacity already operated by SSE and will contribute to their target of owning and operating 4,000MW of renewable energy capacity in the UK and Ireland by the end of 2013.

I've had a passion for everything British my entire life, despite being raised as a small-town girl in the American Midwest, After years of dreaming, I got the chance to live and work in England for an entire year. Now I write about my favorite country, and hopefully inspire my fellow Britophiles to get over there and experience it for themselves.
