Community Windpower Ltd was formed in 2001 and is an independent, UK based renewable energy company who specialise in the design, development, construction and operation of wind farms.
We believe in an open and consultative approach with the local communities during the development stage of the project and prior to the submission of a planning application. We are experienced in designing wind farms that are sympathetic to local landscapes and can provide local generation to meet local energy needs. We have a dedicated team of professional staff who are committed to renewable energy to help reduce the serious threat that Climate Change now poses.
Our Dalry Community Windfarm in North Ayrshire, was commissioned in 2006 and generated enough power for over 12,000 homes in its first year of operation, around 57 GWh. Aikengall Community Wind Farm near Dunbar, East Lothian, was commissioned in March 2009 and is now in full operation generating 48 MW of clean, green electricity. Millour Hill Community Wind Farm, an 18 MW scheme adjacent to Dalry Community Wind Farm was commissioned in May 2012.
Our fourth project, Calder Water Community Wind Farm near Strathaven in South Lanarkshire completed construction in October 2013 and is now fully operational, comprising of 13 turbines with an installed generating capacity of 39MW. During the summer of 2012, planning permission was granted for our fifth project, Sneddon Law Community Wind Farm, near Galston in East Ayrshire with 15 turbines and a capacity of 50 MW and construction is commencing shortly.
We have a total of 750 MW in operation, under construction and in development in the UK. Our pipeline will involve substantial investment into the economy worth over £1billion the majority of which is in Scotland and England; a valuable economic lifeline for jobs and businesses who supply the renewables industry.
