Derbyshire man says mini turbine switch 'worthwhile'


A man who spent £13,000 installing a mini wind turbine to power his house says the switch has proved "worthwhile".

Kevin Field, from south Derbyshire, opted to try out the technology five years ago.

Since then, the 18m (59ft) turbine has provided about 60% of his house's power supply.

Now Mr Field is considering going one step further and installing solar panels.
