About the project

crane

Reaps Moss Wind Farm is a 10.2MW (megawatt) wind farm that was constructed in 2014/15 on the moors between Bacup and Todmorden.    The wind farm was developed and taken through the planning process by Coronation Power, with planning permission received in late 2012.

Coronation Power subsequently sold the wind farm to Reaps Moss Limited in November 2013.  Reaps Moss Limited appointed Partnerships for Renewables to manage the construction programme and then the subsequent operation of the wind farm. 

Construction was completed in the Summer of 2015, with the turbines becoming fully operational on 8th September.

All three turbines are located within the area covered by Rossendale Borough Council, although the site entrance and part of the access road are just across the county boundary in Calderdale, Yorkshire. 

The wind farm consists of 3 Senvion XM104, 3.4MW turbines, which are 73m to hub and 125m to blade tip.  The site is expected to generate around 37.9GWh (gigawatt hours) over the course of a year, equivalent to the annual electricity usage of over 8,000 average UK homes[1]
