Solwaybank Wind Farm
|Location||nr Langholm, Scotland|
|Number of Turbines||15|
|Turbine Rating||2 MW|
|Total expected installed capacity||30 MW|
In 2009, RES submitted a planning application to Dumfries and Galloway Council for a 21 turbine wind farm at Solwaybank. Since submitting our original application, RES has received comments from the local community and consultees. We have taken on board the comments and modified our proposal as a result. We withdrew our original application in July 2010 in order to redesign the layout of the site and reduce the number of turbines.
In 2011 RES submitted a new planning application, along with an Environmental Statement (ES) and Pre-Application Consultation (PAC) Report, for Solwaybank Wind Farm to Dumfries and Galloway Council. RES is now proposing a 15 turbine wind farm with an installed capacity of approximately 30MW.
