Welcome to High Winds

High Winds is a successful community renewable energy society. It owns and operates two 2.3MW Enercon Wind Turbines at Harlock Hill near Ulverston, Cumbria.

In 2015, with the support from Energy4All, High Winds issued a share offer and raised £4million from its members towards the cost of constructing the wind turbines. Baywind Energy Co-op provided short term funding to complete the construction costs. The wind turbines began generating in June.

High Winds will pay a portion of its profits annually to the Baywind Community Energy Fund.

On July 11th 2017, High Winds Community Energy Society, together with Baywind Energy and Energy Prospects, and with the support of the ethical investment company Thrive Renewables, acquired the Mean Moor wind farm in Cumbria. Read more
