Baywind Energy Co-operative is proud to be the first UK co-operative to own wind turbines.
After successfully raising £2 million through share offers in 1997, Baywind has over 1,200 members.
For almost 20 years we owned six wind turbines in Cumbria. Five of our wind turbines based at Harlock Hill in Cumbria were decommissioned in January 2016, to make way for 2 new high powered turbines belonging to our successor High Winds Community Energy Co-operative.
The Baywind Co-op has one remaining turbine located at Haverigg, in Cumbria.
Baywind is currently investing in small scale solar photo voltaic installations.
