Templeborough Biomass Power Plant
of green electricity
homes with energy
tons of CO2 a year
We plan to open our renewable energy plant in August 2017 when it will generate just over 41MW of green electricity which is enough to supply 78,000 homes and save over 150,000 tons of CO2 every year. It’s difficult to visualise how much that is but would look the same as 250,000 really big hot air balloons and the saving is equal to 1.75 million plane flights to Paris.
New Bridge Across The River Don
It is planned that over the Bank holiday weekend of Saturday 28th to Monday 30th May the old bridge on the site of the new Templeborough Biomass plant will be lifted out…
Will there be more traffic on the roads because of your project?
Yes there will be, but at around 40 fuel lorries per day this increase will be well within the capacity of the local road network to support. As part of the planning application process we have completed a Traffic Management Plan to ensure this increase has as little impact as possible. Deliveries will largely reach site from the M1 Junctions 33 or 34.
