Higher Goonamarth 2, St Austell, Cornwall
Installation type: Single wind turbine
Installation size: 4.3 MW
CleanEarth are proposing a single wind turbine on land at Higher Goonamarth, on Imerys land in Cornwall.
The proposed Higher Goonamarth 2 turbine is expected to have an annual generation of over 13 GWh, sufficient to power over 3,000 Cornish homes. The carbon savings of the project are just over 2,500 tonnes of carbon annually with a predicted lifetime saving of nearly 100,000 tonnes – making a significant contribution to Cornwall’s carbon reduction targets in the pursuit of carbon neutrality by 2030.
The proposed site falls within the northern fringes of the St Mewan Parish. The project will direct an annual contribution fund to aid local projects and causes in the community.
A public consultation will be held on Wednesday 15 November 2023 from 3pm to 7pm in the atrium at Wheal Martyn Clay Works Museum. Please note this is an open event with no appointment required. However registering your interest prior to the event is encouraged, via phone on 01208 895576 (ext 308) or by email.
The planning statement and supporting information will be published below. Comments can be submitted through an online questionnaire that will be available during the event and for 28 days afterwards.
