Dealing with Energy Issues

Met Mast collecting wind data

The need for more renewable energy sources is greater than ever. Rising power prices, fears over security of supply and climate change have put the issue of energy high in everyone’s mind. National and regional authorities have acknowledged that renewable energy is an important solution to help meet the challenges of our modern lifestyle and its ever increasing energy demands. Scotland achieved its target of 100% of electricity sourced from renewables by 2020, but there is a huge amount still to do to meet the new Net-Zero targets.


Apart from the low carbon and energy security advantages that are felt on a national level, the wind farm would provide benefits to the local community as well.  With the new proposal, the installed capacity of the wind farm would increase by 50% from 16MW to 24MW, and therefore the community benefit fund would also increase by 50% to £120,000 per year.
