Stronelairg Wind Farm Update
Following the recent result of the appeal of the Judicial Review on Stronelairg wind farm, SSE’s Wholesale business is now undertaking further work to see whether it will be possible to accredit the project under the Renewables Obligation. This will be considered as part of any final investment decision and SSE will provide a further update in its Notification of Close Period statement on 28 September.
Stronelairg will not be seen from the Great Glen’s key tourist routes, will be entirely invisible from Loch Ness and will utilise the extensive existing infrastructure at our Glendoe hydro scheme.
Stronelairg is a carefully designed project that was strongly supported by many local stakeholders was not opposed by the local community council and was supported by the Highland Council planning committee and will bring significant benefits to the local and wider economy.
