cut the ribbon during the official opening cerermony of the Scout Moor Wind Farm.
On the 25th of September 2008 dignitaries from across the North West were invited to the official opening of the Scout Moor wind farm.
Children from Edenfield Primary School, who have enjoyed lessons based around the wind farm, were on hand to cut the ribbon at Turbine No 22 above.Link
Head Teacher at Edenfield Primary School, Janet Reidy, said: "It was superb for the children to be involved after all the work they had done about the wind farm in their lessons.
I think they will all remember this in future years and now they know what it's like to be film stars with all the camera crews there!"
Richard Dibley, wind power development manager at Peel, said at the opening: "We have welcomed people here today to thank them for their patience and understanding during the construction period and for them to see the wind farm in action at close quarters. I think we have chosen the perfect site here as it is more than 50% windier up here than it is in the surrounding area. These turbines will be generating power for years to come using a natural resource that will never run out."
