Summary

Stornoway Harbour

The Project

The Stornoway Wind Farm is designed to harness the excellent wind resource on the Isle of Lewis.

Working in partnership with The Stornoway Trust, which has been considering community-influenced renewable energy projects for a number of years, we believe that our project has taken the right steps to deliver a publicly acceptable, income-generating scheme to the Isle of Lewis.

We are looking to balance renewable energy production with environmental impact, ensuring that the needs of the stakeholders and other interested parties within the local community will be accommodated.

The Stornoway Wind Farm is a 36 turbine development with a generating capacity of up to 129.6MW.  The wind farm layout can be found under the Project Information page.

The Section 36 Planning Application and Environmental Statement were submitted to the Scottish Government on 30 June 2011.  An Addendum to the Environmental Statement was submitted on 27 January 2012.

Consent was granted by the Scottish Government on 7 September 2012. In January 2014, we accepted the grid offer from National Grid.

We value your local knowledge and want to understand what is important to you, so please talk with us and tell us your views. David Morrison is our local Community Consultation Coordinator and you can find his details below or on the Contacts page.
