Banks Renewables is re-branding to OnPath Energy. We’re building our new website OnPathEnergy.com – take a sneak peek and sign up for updates.

Environmental factors that we consider when designing a wind farm

The project team start thinking about how a project interacts with its environment at the very start of initial design. The Environmental Impact Assessment is a key part of the planning application and guides the design process. Listen to Rachel, our planning director, talk about how environmental factors are explored and factored into our planning process.

How will we manage the trees on site?+


The proposed windfarm is located in an extensive area of commercial forestry. To minimise the amount of forestry being felled we are looking to keyhole the turbines into the forestry, which means that we will only remove the trees around the turbines and the infrastructure, leaving the reminder of the forest intact.


How will we manage the wildlife in the area?+


We have commissioned external experts and analysed over two years of data to help us understand the local wildlife. We have taken this information into account when developing our proposal.
