RES reaches sale agreement with SSE Renewables on 49.9 MW Aberarder Wind Farm
RES, the world’s largest renewable energy company, has today announced the sale of Aberarder Wind Farm to SSE Renewables. The 12-turbine project located in Strathnairn, near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands has a consented capacity of 49.9 MW.
