Planned capacity: up to 225 MW, capable of powering up to 144,942 homes*
Number of turbines: 48
The Clash Gour Wind Farm has been developed by Force 9 Energy working in partnership with EDF Renewables via a Joint Development Agreement. Force 9 Energy is an independent, UK based renewable energy developer. If the Clash Gour project is consented, EDF Renewables would build, own and operate the wind farm.
Next steps: Because the proposed development will be over 50MW, the wind farm is classed as a Section 36 scheme and requires the submission of an application to the Scottish Government’s Energy Consents Unit (ECU).
*Please note that this figure is based on 48 turbines with a rated capacity of 3.3MW and 6MW operating at site derived capacity factors of between 35.3% and 39.5% and assuming 3,781 is the average UK household electricity consumption in kW hours (based most recent statistics from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)).
