Three billion boiled kettles later and the UK's first commercial wind farm is celebrating a quarter of a century of generating renewable power.
It is 25 years since turbines were first switched on - on December 21 1991 - at Delabole Wind Farm on the north Cornwall coast, generating power for 2,700 homes a year.
Since then, the UK wind industry has grown from Delabole's 10 turbines to more than 1,000 commercial-scale onshore and offshore projects that generate enough electricity to power 9.5 million homes a year.
Across the UK, using wind has avoided burning more than 106 million tonnes of coal over the past 25 years, industry body RenewableUK said - with 58 million tonnes displaced from 2013 to 2015 as wind power boomed.
Fire fighters called out in a Cornish village were delayed "due to careless parking".
