Installation size: 22.5 MW


CleanEarth are proposing the repowering of Bears Down Wind Farm with five turbines up to 150m in height, and associated infrastructure, located on land at Bears Down, Trevilledor Cross.

The proposed repowering is expected to have an annual generation of over 71 GWh, sufficient to power over 14,000 Cornish homes. The carbon savings of the project are just over 15,000 tonnes of carbon annually with a predicted lifetime saving of nearly 530,000 tonnes – making a significant contribution to Cornwall’s carbon reduction targets in the pursuit of carbon neutrality by 2030.

The proposed site falls along the border of St Ervan and St Mawgan-in-Pydar parishes. The project will direct an annual contribution fund to aid local projects and causes in the surrounding community.

A public consultation was held on Wednesday 29 November 2023.
