About the proposal

We are developing an extension to the consented Lethans Wind Farm in the Ayrshire area and we want to hear your community’s views.

We have been exploring how to optimise the efficiency of the site and design a proposal that meets the needs for efficiently generating renewable energy that brings social, economic and environmental benefits to your local area and Scotland.

Our current proposal includes:

  • Up to 11 turbines
  • Maximum tip heights of up to 260m
  • Approximately 66MW in generation capacity
  • Approximately £9.9m in community benefits funding

We are eager to hear your thoughts on all aspects of the design and how a proposal of this scale can best serve the interests of the local community with investment and community benefit funding.

Community consultation webinars

We’re holding two community consultation events at 7pm on the 2nd and 3rd of June to hear your thoughts on our Lethans Wind Farm plans.

We want the project to make meaningful contributions to life in the local area – which is why we want to discuss how you feel our efforts would be best spent assisting the community.

Please join us…

Inform the design

We would like to hear your views on both the design of the wind farm and how the community benefits fund will be spent over the operational life of the project. You also have an option to give any other comments.

What is happening?

Throughout the life of the Lethans Extension Wind Farm project we want to work together with your local community to ensure that you are kept informed about what we are doing and you have plenty of opportunities to provide feedback to us.

We are currently in the design phase and talking to local people before we submit a planning application and are eager to listen to your views.
