RES has submitted a planning application for its 21-wind turbine Bloch Wind Farm to the Scottish Government’s Energy Consents Unit for determination.
Located on land adjacent to the existing Solwaybank Wind Farm, Langholm, Dumfries and Galloway, the proposal has an installed capacity of up to 126MW. Following results of technical and environmental surveys and feedback from stakeholders and the local community during the respective public consultations held in June and October 2022, a number of design changes have been made to the proposal. These include reducing the size of the scheme from 22 to 21 wind turbines and reducing the tip height of 11 wind turbines to lessen visibility. Previously known as Solwaybank Extension, the scheme has been renamed to better reflect its location close to Bloch Hill.
