Land formerly used for surface mining in Northumberland has been repurposed by Peel Group and acquired by Infinis Group for use as an on-shore wind farm generating up to 18.5MW. Although the future remains uncertain at the time of writing as to the government subsidies to be available in the future for this type of energy generation, it is interesting to note the long-term change of use of this land, it is still to be used for energy generation.
