Wildfires which devastated much of the Moray countryside in the north of Scotland last year have led to increased environmental benefits being proposed by Europe’s largest renewable energy producer.
A brief summary of the Energy Isles Wind Farm has been published, showing how it has evolved since first being proposed eight years ago. From its first beginnings as a 63 turbine project, the wind farm has constantly been re-assessed and refined as more information and feedback has been received.
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.
Final plans for a proposed wind farm in North Yell have been submitted to the Scottish Government by Energy Isles Shetland.
