Our onshore wind farms

Where are they?

Our onshore wind farms mark the next step in our green transformation journey and are a cost-effective clean energy solution that will help support UK net-zero targets and the green economic recovery, benefiting the communities in which we operate.

Explore our onshore wind farm projects that are in construction and in development below. Here, you will also discover their location, the number of wind turbines on each project, and how much green electricity they will generate for UK homes.
Onshore wind farms in construction
  • Kennoxhead Phase 1

    Kennoxhead Phase 1

    Located in South Lanarkshire, Scotland, Kennoxhead Phase 1 onshore wind farm is currently under construction and comprises 13 turbines of the 19 consented for the project. Each turbine will have a tip height of no more than 180 metres. Once complete in 2022, the subsidy-free onshore wind project will have an installed capacity of 62 MW.

    Kennoxhead Phase 1 forms part of the Kennoxhead Wind Farm Cluster which will have an anticipated installed capacity of 174 MW. This project also includes Kennoxhead Phase 2 which is currently in development.

  • Kennoxhead phase 2

    Kennoxhead phase 2

    Forming part of the Kennoxhead Wind Farm Cluster in South Lanarkshire, Scotland, Kennoxhead Phase 2 encompasses three developments constructed as a single project. Once complete in 2024, the onshore wind farm will have an installed capacity of 112 MW.

    As part of the Phase 2 project, the remaining 6 turbines from the consented Kennoxhead Phase 1 wind farm will be constructed reaching 180 metres in height.

    Phase 2 also comprises the consented Penbreck Wind Farm development of nine wind turbines with a tip height of 145 metres. However, a revised application was submitted to the Scottish Government’s Energy Consents unit in May 2021 proposing to reduce the number of wind turbines to seven with an increase in turbine tip-height to 220 metres with an eighth turbine of up to 200 metres.

    Kennoxhead Wind Farm Extension also forms part of the Phase 2 onshore wind project. Consent has been granted by Scottish Ministers to construct and operate an eight-turbine extension to the Kennoxhead Phase 1 wind farm. The turbines will have a maximum height of 180 metres.

  • Polquhairn

    Polquhairn Wind Farm

    Located near Sinclairston in East Ayrshire, Scotland, Polquhairn Wind Farm will produce enough green energy to power around 16,000 UK homes.

    The onshore wind farm was granted permission in 2018 and will comprise of nine, 100-metre-tall turbines with a likely installed capacity of 22.5 MW. We are now exploring the potential to develop the project further by increasing the blade tip heights which will boost capacity to 31 MW. This will ensure the project can be constructed in a subsidy-free landscape.

    Public consultation events took place in October 2020 and an updated proposals application was submitted to East Ayrshire Council for review. An application decision is expected in Summer 2021 and we hope to start construction in 2024 with a view to being operational by 2025.

  • Larbrax

    Labrax Wind Farm

    Larbrax Wind Farm will be situated in Wigtownshire on the North Rhins Peninsula of Scotland’s west coast. The project was granted planning consent by the Scottish Government in October 2016.

    Once operation, the eight-turbine wind farm will be capable of generating around 20 MW of green electricity, enough to meet the average daily needs of 12,000 homes.

  • Meikle Hill

    Meikle Hill Wind Farm

    The proposed Meikle Hill Wind Farm will be located southeast of Dallas in Moray, approximately 35 miles east of Inverness, Scotland. The onshore wind farm will comprise of six turbines and will generate 19.8 MW of green energy which will meet the electricity needs of up to 9,000 UK homes.

    Plans for the Meikle Hill Wind Farm were consented by Moray Council in June 2015.
