New wind turbine

Font not the right size?    

It’s encouraging to see the arrival of the first wind turbine on the new City College site at Granville Road- I believe this is the first wind turbine in Manor Castle ward. It will power the ventilation for the new building, and will be followed by three much larger turbines on the college roof. You can also see the sedum roof on the new nursery, which changes colour with the seasons. It warmly insulates the building and provides a living habitat for birds and insects, and soaks up the rain preventing so much run off to the drains. Hopefully these wind turbines will help to dispel some of the many myths that are regularly used to argue against wind turbines- if you believe the anti wind campaigners the students will need to be issued with earplugs when they come for lectures!
