Berry Burn Extension

The Berry Burn Wind Farm has been generating clean, renewable electricity since 2014.


Welcome to our project website.

We would like to tell you more about the project and ourselves. This website will be kept updated over the development period to keep you informed and hear your views and ideas.

There is potential to add an additional 9 turbines next to the existing Berry Burn Wind Farm, located eight miles south of Forres in Moray. The wind farm is operated and majority owned by Statkraft and has been operating since 2014. It is made up of 29 turbines, and in a typical year provides power for the equivalent of 47,000 homes.

In less than five years the wind farm has delivered over £1.1 million to over 100 local groups and initiatives via the Community Benefit Fund.

We would like to share our plans and hear your views before an application is submitted to the Scottish Government.

We hope to use this website to continue the conversation as we finalise the design. Please ask us a question or phone our project hotline: 0800 772 0668.

    As we look towards presenting our final plans to the public before submitting an application, we revisited feedback received during our community engagement events in November 2019

    During the exhibitions, key points of information we delivered included:

    • Reducing the scheme from the original proposal of 10 turbines down to 9
    • Increasing distance to nearest turbine from Dallas (now 6km)
    • Retaining tip height of just under 150m which avoids aviation lighting
    • How the project can deliver a biodiversity gain
    • Impacts of the wildfire and fire prevention measures

    You can download the report here. We would like to thank the various people from the community who participated, and the hall organisers of the venues at Edinkillie, Dallas, Rafford and Forres who kindly helped us in using their facilities.

    Our intention is to submit a Section 36 application to Scottish Government in Summer 2020, and we will provide further updates as the project progresses.
