E.ON has submitted an application for its 18 turbine Benbrack Wind Farm to Scottish Government. The wind farm, if constructed, will be located to the north east of Carsphairn and approximately 6km to the south of Dalmellington, and would 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. Where possible, changes have been made to reflect both community and environmental feedback including a reduction in turbine numbers from 27 to 18 turbines.
