Updated Wind Farm Plans Presented in February 2020
Local residents from the North Isles were invited to view updated plans for the Energy Isles Wind Farm on Yell. The plans from Statkraft, Europe’s largest generator of renewable energy, were on view at Cullivoe Hall on Tuesday 4th February 2020 from 12 noon - 7pm.
Charlotte Healey, Project Director for Statkraft said; “This is our third consultation and we have talked to a lot of local residents about our proposals. The feedback we received has influenced how we have taken the project forward.
“We have continued to work behind the scenes with key statutory consultees and this has led us to the final layout and design that we will be showing to people at the exhibition.”
In 2019, Energy Isles Limited announced a development partnership with Statkraft. The project is continuing under the banner of Energy Isles Shetland Limited.
