Working with Partnerships for Renewables, British Waterways says the proposals could provide annual savings in excess of 100,000 tonnes of CO2, and generate enough power for 45,000 homes – the equivalent to the canalside town of Blackburn.
The proposals are based on a target of 50 wind turbines built across the UK over the next five years that will have the capacity to generate 100 mega watts of renewable electricity. Income generated from the turbines will be reinvested into maintaining Britain’s waterways.
