Background: In August 2015 Banks Renewables sold Quixwood Moor wind farm to NTR plc
The news release of August 2015 stated: “Banks Renewables, part of the family-owned energy and property firm The Banks Group, has concluded the sale of one of its consented onshore wind farms to Irish renewable energy investor NTR to help fund the next stage of development of its development. Agreement has been reached on the sale of the 13-turbine Quixwood Moor wind farm, which sits on agricultural land between the villages of Grantshouse and Abbey St Bathans in Berwickshire in the Scottish borders, and for which Banks Renewables was granted planning permission in 2013.
As part of the sale, NTR has committed to fulfil the Quixwood Moor community funding commitments made in the local area by Banks Renewables. The resources realised by the sale of Quixwood Moor will help Banks Renewables carry out development work on a range of further onshore wind farms which are currently at different stages of the planning process. Climate Change Capital and Brodies LLP advised Banks Renewables during the sale of the Quixwood Moor wind farm, while NTR was supported by Pinsent Masons and Natural Power.
