Mendlesham REP is a proposed straw-powered electricity generating plant, to be located on land adjacent to Mendlesham Industrial Estate near Mendlesham. It will use straw sourced from local farms to generate some 300 million units of green electricity each year – equivalent to the needs of 65,000 households.
The full planning application is available to view on the Mid-Suffolk District Council website and the application reference number is 0759/12.
We have also produced two factsheets that address some of the common concerns about energy generation. These give information about the fuel used at the plant and the emissions that it produces, providing an accurate picture that we hope will help people to understand our proposals further.
