|HAGSHAW HILL WINDFARM

|Operational since 1995 - An extension to Hagshaw Hill was consented in December 2006 and construction on 20 new turbines was completed in 2008. The 26 original turbines are now in the process of being repowered. They have now been decommissioned and will be replaced by 14 new turbines with a much higher generating capacity.

Hagshaw Hill Repowering
The original 16MW is now undergoing a process of repowering, becoming home to 14 new wind turbines with a combined capacity of over 79MW. The windfarm will be capable of producing around five times the amount of clean, green energy than before, from just over half the number of turbines.
The Hagshaw Hill repowering project is part of ScottishPower Renewables’ wider ambition to maximise the efficiency of its existing sites by replacing older turbines with new, more powerful, and efficient models.
With the repowering of the original turbines, once completed, the site will have capacity to power 66,000 homes every year.
