Windy Rig Wind Farm

Project phase: 
Development
Nominal power (estimated): 
39.6 MW
Number of generating units: 
12

The Windy Rig Wind Farm would represent a natural extension to the existing and consented cluster of wind turbines at Windy Standard. As well as concentrating wind farms in one area this also means that infrastructure can be shared with other developments, reducing environmental effects.

Planning Application

The location for this wind farm has been selected for the following key reasons:

  • Lack of residential properties within close proximity;
  • A natural extension to an existing wind farm;
  • Good wind speeds; and
  • Close proximity to existing grid connection.

Our planning application and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) were submitted to Dumfries and Galloway Council in May 2015.
