We have operated Wether Hill Windfarm since 2007, with the site's 14 turbines generating 18 megawatts of power.
We have since identified an area adjacent to this windfarm as a location suitable for an extension. The majority of our extension is within an 'Area of Greatest Potential' for large wind turbines as identified by Dumfries & Galloway Council.
As responsible developers of renewable energy, we strive to be good neighbours in all aspects of our work. We are committed to Dumfries & Galloway and to maximising opportunities for local communities to benefit from our projects.
Through ScottishPower Renewables' community benefit fund and sponsorship, we have supported and facilitated a number of tourist and local events in the area including; the Moniaive Folk Festival, the Moniaive Blue Grass Festival, and the Carsphairn Show.
Our operational Wether Hill Windfarm has been generating cleaner, greener electricity and powering communities with more than £550,000 of funding since 2007. This proposed extension would see contributions to the existing fund increased.
