The prototype wind vane installation on Kelston Roundhill is performing well in present weather, although they’re still not yet connected to the farm irrigation system and the Old Barn. We’re still in B&NES’ pre-planning advice process about the renewables installation.
Many thanks to those who have responded so far to the consultation about this. This will remain open for two more weeks until Wed 13 Nov. So if you haven’t yet responded and would still like to please do.
We’ve had useful feedback from the process already. The designers have in particular taken on board feedback about sun reflection from certain angles on sunny evenings. They have agreed to paint the blades with a matt finish, in a neutral grey colour, to address the issue. The plan is for the turbines to remain static until this work is completed.
Work has meanwhile started on construction of a stone storage shed which could house electrical equipment such as battery.
