Doing more at the cutting edge of energy innovation
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.
At SSE we’re proud of our hydro heritage – and we lead the way in using the natural force of water to generate power.
At SSE we are committed to doing the right thing by the environment.
