ScottishPower and RES UK Ltd have been granted planning permission by Scottish Borders Council for a 30MW, 35 turbine extension to Dun Law wind farm south of Soutra. The combined 61 turbine wind farm will provide enough green energy for 24,000 homes and will reduce carbon emissions equivalent to taking 35,000 cars off the road.
The decision comes after a full public consultation process with the local community and over 40 organisations. A short tendering process will now begin for the £30 million project, with construction expected to start later in 2006. As with the original wind farm, the jointly developed scheme will be constructed by RES and owned and operated by ScottishPower.
