The parish of Manchester will be the location for a study on renewable energy strategy, through of a Wind Mapping study. This study is being undertaken by Wigton Wind Farm Limited, an agency of the Ministry of Energy and Mining, through the PCJ.
Wind mapping will determine the wind blowing patterns across the island. It will also identify the best points for establishing wind farms.
The study will advance the government’s agenda in managing energy resources under the National Energy Policy. The policy seeks to provide the framework for the sustainable management of energy resources and the development of viable renewable energy resources, which is expected to represent some 20 per cent of the country’s energy mix by 2030.
