Tilley Updates: June 2024

As we head into Summer, the TREL Board wanted to give you an update on the current status of Tilley.

Generated in June

248,947 kWh

Most Productive Day

4th of June – 14,658 kWh

Windiest Day

27th of June – 55.9mph

As you know, there was a period over the winter 2023-24 where she was not turning. That has had an impact on the Trust’s revenue this year, but the good news is that she is once again operational – although she is not generating at 100%.

Tilley is currently generating at 60% power. This is a fairly standard level of generation during calmer summer weather, and Enercon are due to make a final fix in September or October.

Tilley recently had a short period of downtime for regular blade maintenance which went smoothly. Tilley will be off from 0830 on the 17th July for a monthly test run, and should be back on in the afternoon.

The Windfall Fund has reopened for community projects, and you can find out more here.
