Blood Hill wind farm

Blood Hill is a wind farm near Hemsby in Norfolk, England. It is the smallest windfarm owned by E.ON; taking up 3 hectares. It has a nameplate capacity of 2.25MW which is enough to power 1000 homes at peak. There are 10 Vestas V27-225kW turbines which are 30 metres tall and stand on top of Blood Hill. They are clearly visible from the villages of Hemsby and Winterton-on-Sea. Blood Hill began operating in December 1992 and was one of the first windfarms in the United Kingdom.

In 2000 a much larger 65m 1.5MW Ecotricity turbine was built adjacent to the site.
