Winds of Change Sweeping York

Family integrates 5kW wind turbine and solar panels to power home

Published: 22-Mar-2004

residents have been urged to look more closely at green energy alternatives by an environmentally-friendly family.

The Richards family, who live on the edge of Naburn Wood, off the A19, between Naburn and Escrick, toasted their new wind turbine at the weekend.

They believe the 50ft high generator, coupled with a bank of solar-power cells soon to be installed on the roof of their home, will supply all of their energy needs.

Dr Robert Richards, who has also organised the replanting of 20 acres of ancient woodland near his home, said other York householders should look at their "green" options.
