Green light for Galloper offshore wind farm: Galloper Wind Farm Limited said it has been granted permission by...

It is also reported that related infrastructure at Sizewell will connect the wind farm to the electricity grid system. The developer estimates that the 140-turbine development will provide enough electricity to power the equivalent of as many as 500,000 homes a year when completed in 2017. The project could generate between £18mn and £20mn of investment in Suffolk and create around 600 jobs across the country, said Galloper. “Galloper wind farm will provide large amounts of clean energy, support jobs and generate major investment in Suffolk,” said a Department of Energy and Climate Change spokesperson. “Offshore wind has an important role to play as part of a balanced energy mix. This development will enhance our energy security and help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” the spokesperson added.
