Wind Farm at Cribbs Causeway?

Trym Tales understands that a planning application is due to be submitted later this month to install six small wind turbines on the roof of Marks and Spencer's flagship store in Cribbs Causeway.

The turbines would generate electricity for use in the regional shopping centre.

The trend towards placing turbines in urban areas is already well established and looks set to continue after the successful trial of two larger wind turbines at Avonmouth.

On the subject of Cribbs Causeway, DIY superstore B & Q now stock a supply of individual wind turbine systems for use on domestic properties in the Bristol area. The WS1200 micro-wind system comes fully installed on the roof and connected to the domestic supply for the production of free and clean electricity. The price of the 4 meter high system is a breezy £1898. Planning permission is required.
