Moss Valley Fine Meats, Povey Farm, Sheffield
Moss Valley Fine Meats is an award winning local butchery located in the heart of the Moss Valley and on the outskirts of its nearest town, Sheffield.
The Butchery is on-farm and only carefully selected breeds of pigs pass through it. The farm is family run, with the 4th Generation, Stephen and Karen now farming there.
The farm consumes a large amount of electricity and Stephen and Karen wanted protection against future energy prices whilst also improving green credentials.
Having already invested in a Photovoltaic System and micro wind turbine, after recommendation Moss Valley approached DC21 for the planning approval and installation of an Endurance E-3120 wind turbine.
“The project was well managed from planning approval, even with some issues from the local planning authority, right through to installation. Despite the weather and Northern Power Grid frying the farm electrics DC21 got the turbine commissioned without significant delay. In operation the turbine is much quieter than we expected, and the DC21 team do an excellent job on keeping the turbine running well.”
