Project Benefits

Wheelabrator Harewood will support the UK’s energy demands by providing a valuable source of clean, renewable baseload energy, from residential, commercial and industrial waste that would otherwise be sent to landfill. Enough electricity will be generated each year to power the equivalent of over 110,000 homes.

We will create an economic stimulus to the local community by providing hundreds of full-time jobs during construction and approximately 50 new full-time jobs during operations.

The positive long-term economic impact to each local community during construction and operations is in the millions of pounds. These benefits come from permanent jobs, major and routine maintenance projects and ongoing operations requiring support from local businesses and contractors. We’ll also support local community programmes and causes. This will benefit the local community in a similar way to the Raymond Brown ‘Community Matters’ scheme.
