Sandy Knowe Wind Farm was consented by Dumfries and Galloway Council in March 2016.

We submitted an application to the Council in July 2015 for a reduced 24 turbine Sandy Knowe scheme, each turbine with a tip height up to 125m, with the project having a total installed capacity of up to 48MW.

In February 2015, the Scottish Government decided  not to grant consent for our original 30-turbine Sandy Knowe scheme on the grounds of landscape and visual impact, even though the scheme had massive support from local people.

We were bitterly disappointed with this decision but, after speaking to members of the local community, we resolved to reconsider our options for the site and bring forward new proposals for Sandy Knowe that would improve on the previous schemes landscape and visual impact.

As a result we moved ahead with a reduced 24-turbine scheme, which has now been consented locally by Dumfries & Galloway Council.
