E.ON wind farm public exhibitions end

Over 4,500 visitors from across Sussex attend 12 exhibitions to give E.ON their views on its proposed Rampion Offshore Wind Farm. The company hosted 12 public exhibitions across the county in the largest consultation it has ever undertaken in the UK.

The formal community consultation for the development does not come to an end until Sunday 6 May and the consultation document and questionnaire are still available on the project website www.eon-uk.com/rampion and in public buildings.

Chris Tomlinson, E.ON Development Manager for the project, said: “I’ve been surprised and delighted by the level of response we’ve had for the Rampion project so far. I’ve spoken to hundreds of people at our exhibitions and the majority feel positive about the proposed development for the region.

“If you haven’t yet had your say on the Rampion proposals, we’d urge you to have a look at our consultation document and submit a questionnaire before Sunday 6 May. We want as much feedback as possible so that we can design the very best wind farm project, which will make a valuable contribution to securing our electricity supply in the future."

The proposed offshore wind farm, which would be located 13km off the Sussex coast at its nearest point, could feature between 100 to 195 turbines depending on the model used. The site could accommodate an installed electrical capacity of up to 700MW, which E.ON estimates could generate enough electricity to supply the equivalent of around 450,000 homes.

Caroline Lucas MP said: "This exciting clean energy project could provide a real boost for Brighton and Hove, and the Sussex economy as a whole. Investment in renewables and green industries is precisely what we need to create jobs for local people and do our bit to reduce carbon emissions. It's hugely important in developments like Rampion that the local community is able to voice concerns and contribute to the process - so EON's extensive consultation is encouraging.”

Comments on the scheme proposals can be made in writing to FREEPOST RAMPION OFFSHORE WIND FARM or by email using rampion@eon.com or by telephone on 01273 694 876.
