The Hall Wind Farm is located approximately 5.5 km north of Beverley and 14 km west of Hornsea.
The site is comprised of 12 turbines. These are rated at 2.05MW each giving the whole wind farm a rated capacity of 24.6MW. Each turbine is approximately 60 metres to the hub with 40 metre blades resulting in a tip height of 100 metres. The project also includes all the ancillary equipment and features such as access tracks, anemometer mast, underground cables, substation and control building. The electricity from the Hall Farm Wind Farm is due to feed into the local distribution network via a new purpose built underground grid connection.

The site was consented in February 2009 and construction is currently ongoing.
Upon operation, the land around the turbines returns to normal agricultural use and will remain in this state for the lifetime of the wind farm, expected to be 25 years. The site will not be permanently staffed but is monitored remotely and visited regularly by technicians for scheduled maintenance and repairs. After 25 years the turbines and associated infrastructure are removed and the land is returned to the pre-wind farm condition.
During construction a large amount of money will be fed into the regional economy. Millions of pounds are to spent during the development and construction of the Hall Farm Wind Farm with local contractors expected to benefit.
A community fund is in the process of being established , which will receive a portion of the revenue generated by the wind farm. The amount offered is based on the yearly output and will continue over the 25 year life time of the project.
To celebrate the completion of the construction phase at Hall Farm Wind Farm RidgeWind have made two scholarships of £1000 each available to students who live in the proximity of the new Hall Farm Wind Farm and wish to pursue further education and training in academic year beginning 2013.

The Hall wind farm at 24.6MW will have the ability to meet the energy demands of at least 12,800 homes. This green electricity generated displaces other generated electricity including fossil fuels and will therefore prevent the release of at least 29,300 tonnes of CO2 every year as well as thousands of tonnes of other harmful greenhouses gases such as Nitrogen Oxides and Sulphur Dioxide (NOx and SO2). (CF 25%).
