Wind Turbine

Investing in wind energy

We own and operate 910MW of onshore wind capacity in the UK and Ireland – with great success. In August 2010, output from our wind farms exceeded customer demand in the north of Scotland. And we’ve already built on that success.

Our £500m Clyde Wind Farm was constructed in 2009, over 47 square kilometres in south central Scotland.

It contains 152 turbines generating up to 350MW of power – that’s enough for around 280,000 homes.

It has the largest wind farm Community Investment Fund in Scotland contributing £875,000 per year to local community projects.
