Solar & Wind

Plans have been drawn up for a renewable energy project in north-east Caithness that will feature solar arrays as well as wind turbines. The application for the 80 megawatt Hollandmey development, on a site to the south of Mey, has been submitted to the Scottish Government’s Energy Consents Unit by ScottishPower Renewables. If approved, it will consist of 10 wind turbines with a blade-tip height of 149.9 metres and with a generating capacity of around 50 MW. There will also be around 15 MW of ground-mounted solar arrays and approximately 15 MW of battery energy storage. Onshore developments above 50 megawatts are determined by Scottish ministers under Section 36 of the Electricity Act.
