Current Status

The Sanquhar Community Wind Farm became operational in March 2018 in partnership with Nestle UK and Ireland. The scheme, consisting of 9 turbines generates 32.4MW of clean, green and locally sourced energy.

Site Location

The wind farm is located on Black Hill approximately 7km Southwest of Sanquhar and 5km Southwest of Kirkconnel. 

Environmental Benefits

Sanquhar Community Windfarm displaces over 34,000 tonnes of harmful CO2 every year, and procudes enough energy to power half of Nestle UK and Ireland's factories, offices and warehouses.

Community Benefits

As part of the Sanquhar Community Wind Farm, £75,000 will be provided for Community Benefits which could include the BeGreen Energy Advice Service, an Educational Ranger to work with local schools specialising in the delivery of environmental topics, funding for environmental and eco-friendly community projects, educational presentations, student bursaries and sponsorship for community events.
