Traditional Anemometer Masts may become a thing of the past - 13th October

Anemometer Mast

REG Windpower has just been granted permission to site a new laser system to measure windspeeds on rough ground near Kirkbudbright. The system comprises of a trailer mounted laser, and works by illuminating the movement of dust, pollen and droplets in the atmosphere which can then be accurately measured. This new system replaces the traditional wind monitoring mast.

The proposed laser has a longer wavelength than that which is visible to the naked eye so would have no impact on residential amenity, tourism and cumulative visual impact.
