The Woodbury power plant – a nice little earner …

Comment re eived:

“The owner of the site is, indeed, Zoe Carter as it is part of Woodbury Business Park.

Using the figures from the National Grid Demand Side Flexibility Annual Report 2018, the average Utilisation Cost for this type of facility was £76/MW/hr. Even if this 40MW plant ‘only’ runs for the 1500 hours put forward in the Plutus Energy Planning Statement this could amount to a not inconsiderable £4.46 million a year from the 1.7 acre site – better than storing caravans or rearing cattle.

Its a pity none of the money goes to the actual residents of Woodbury, or the wider community, who have to live with the noise and pollution.”
