Community Innovation for Sustainable Energy researcher produced a report on the South Wheatley wind turbine project in 2012. The South Wheatley wind turbine was a community owned renewable project in North Cornwall. It was conceived in 2004, and was developed and installed between 2007-2012. Via this initiative the local community was able to generate electricity from the turbine and sell it to the grid in order to invest in local household energy efficiency schemes, renewable energy projects, and energy conservation education in schools. The report outlined key insights into the South Wheatley wind turbine initiative, including that sometimes community groups might need to scale down their projects in order to be successful; and that community projects do not only depend on capable leadership, but also able and supportive communities in order to maintain them.
