Trimdon Grange Wind Farm is an onshore wind farm near Trimdon Grange, County Durham, England. Commissioned in October 2008 it consists of four 1.3 MW Nordex N60 turbines giving a total capacity of 5.2 MW. It was developed by EDF and is operated by Cumbria Wind Farms.[1][2]

The proposed location of the wind farm caused controversy in 2004 when an agent of Tony Blair, then Prime Minister, wrote to a local action group, Trimdon Area Group Against Wind Farms, claiming that the site was unsuitable. The location is about one mile from Tony Blair's old constituency house.[3]
