This will be a productive wind farm due to the exceptional wind resource on site, highlighted by the number of other wind farm developments in the surrounding area, and capable of producing clean, green, renewable electricity and making a valuable contribution to Scotland’s ambitious renewable energy targets. The extensive environmental surveys and design work undertaken to date have shown the potential for the Site to host an onshore wind development of this scale. It is acknowledged that both the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and design processes are iterative in nature and that the current layout of the proposal is likely to evolve during these.

The resultant proposal will balance the environmental and technical constraints, whilst still producing an economically viable project.
