Scottish Power to repower Scotlands first commercial wind farmAfter almost 30 years of service, Scotland’s first commercial windfarm has been powered down in preparation of the site being repowered. Operational since 1995, ScottishPower Renewables’ Hagshaw Hill windfarm in South Lanarkshire generated more than 895MWh over its 28-year lifespan.
 
Now the 16MW site is about to undergo a process of repowering, becoming home to 14 new wind turbines with a combined capacity of over 79MW. Once complete, the windfarm will be capable of producing around five times the amount of clean, green energy than before, from just over half the number of turbines. The decommissioning process will continue over the summer and into early autumn, and the delivery of the first new turbine components to site  expected in May 2024. The new site should be fully operational by early 2025.
