E.ON welcomes Benbrack wind farm approval

E.ON has welcomed the approval of its application for the 18 turbine Benbrack Wind Farm by the Scottish Government.

The 18 turbine site will be located to the north east of Carsphairn and approximately 6km to the south of Dalmellington, and will be capable of producing up to 59.4MW of electricity.

Since launching its proposals in 2012, E.ON has worked closely with the community and undertaken extensive consultation to understand local concerns. E.ON will continue to liaise with them via the Community Liaison Group for the next stage of this project.
