There are a number of reasons why we think that Knockendurrick is an excellent site for a wind farm:

  • Our initial assessments have concluded that the site has an excellent wind resource.
  • Due to the contours of the surrounding area the wind farm has limited visibility from the surrounding settlements.
  • The proposed area of turbine development is over 3 km from the nearest village.
  • The site does not lie in any special protected areas for landscaping, nature conservation or any archaeological or historic designations.
  • Excellent access is provided to the site via the A75 trunk road and a short section of side road.
  • Scope to help your local community deliver its long term aspirations through a unique partnership approach.
  • Development is already supporting local employers, such as the Castle Douglas based Natural Power.
  • With a commitment to use local businesses we will support existing jobs and create new job opportunities in area.
  • Proposal could support in the area targeted training and apprenticeship scheme, to help get local people into employment.
