The planning process for a wind farm is long and thorough. We work closely with local authorities and other stakeholders to ensure that everyone benefits from a carefully planned wind farm. When looking to position our turbines we look at issues such as:
- Distance to the nearest dwellings
- Wildlife and their use of the area including bird migratory routes
- Environmental designations
- Telecommunication links
- Local planning policy
At E.ON our projects move through a development process that typically takes between four and six years.
