UK's BT to Test Roof-top Wind Turbine

Giant telecom hopes to make business out of installing similar turbines on other buildings.

Published: 03-Jan-2004

Telecoms giant BT is to test a new form of power generation by installing a wind turbine on top of one of its exchanges in a trial that could be extended across the country.

The company, one of Britain's biggest electricity users, will select a site in Cornwall to launch the trial in the spring.

The rooftop generator, built by British-based Wind Dam, will supply most of the power to a telephone ex-change during the test, which will take several months to assess.
