Kirkan Wind Farm Application Submitted 29 March 2019

Coriolis Energy and ESB are pleased to announce that our application for Kirkan Wind Farm has been submitted to the Scottish Government's Energy Consents Unit. The application for consent to build 17 turbines on the Strathvaich Estate, near Garve, follows a comprehensive consultation period led by Coriolis Energy.

Whereas we had initially been considering of project with up to 24 turbines, as a result of the comments made to us during the consutlation process we comprehensively redesigned and scaled back the project - reducing the number of turbines and minimising visibility from key areas.

In granted approval, Kirkan Wind Farm would be capable of generating enough renewable electricity to meet the average annual requirements of around 50,000 homes*. Using the naturally available wind resource will help to reduce our carbon emissions, improve security of energy supply and contribute towards achieving Scotland's ambition to generate the equivalent of 100% of electricity demand from renewable sources.
