Manchester City Football Club Go Green

Continuing a long line of speakers in slagging off treehuggers and talking instead about business sense and social responsibility Pete Bradshaw, Social Responsibility Officer for Manchester City (the only one in the UK --but not for long!) spoke about working with ecotricity to install a 2MW wind turbine at Manchester Cities Football ground.

There is a guide to the project plan here. The interesting thing about ecotricity is that they manage, construct and finance the whole deal so that no capital outlay is required. The organisation (in this case a football club) then buys there own power back, but at a dramatically reduced rate.
