RES has submitted a planning application for Sclenteuch Wind Farm, located approximately 3km south west of Patna.
The Scottish Government has set a legally binding target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2045 and renewables, specifically onshore wind, will play an important role in helping to achieve these targets. If consented, the 9-turbine Sclenteuch Wind Farm would be capable of generating up to 54MW of clean, low cost electricity, equivalent to the electricity usage of around 50,000 homes each year. Onshore wind projects like Sclenteuch contribute to net zero targets, enable more energy to be generated domestically improving security of supply, and are the cheapest form of new electricity generation, alongside large-scale solar. This makes developments like Sclenteuch not just good for the environment but also for the consumer.

If consented, we plan to launch our innovative Local Electricity Discount Scheme (LEDS) which provides an annual discount on the electricity bills of properties closest to the wind farm. For more information, please click here.
