To ask Her Majesty's Government how many hours of down-time has been incurred for all mechanical, electrical or systems failures for each of the wind turbines in the installation at Rye in Sussex over the past six months.

I believe that the noble Lord is asking about the Little Cheyne Court wind farm.

The department does not retain records of downtime incurred for mechanical, electrical or systems failures at Little Cheyne Court or any other wind farm. I suggest that in this case the noble Lord contacts the developer, npower renewables.
