Turbine to power Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium

Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium is to have a wind turbine installed in its car park.

The Championship club said it would provide power for 20 years that would otherwise come from the National Grid.

A 136m-tall turbine is being supplied by London-based renewable energy developer, Empowering Wind Group.

Boro chief executive Neil Bausor said it would make Boro the first club in the UK with a completely sustainable energy consumption programme.

Mr Bausor said: "As well as being good for the environment, this initiative will also enable us to make extra savings and enhance our aspirations on the field."

Empowering Wind's chief executive, Paul Millinder, said the turbine, in a location with a similar power consumption and wind profile, would save about £3.2m during the next 20 years at the current lowest commercial tariffs - although electricity prices are expected to rise.
