• Banks Renewables’ experienced development team works with landowners and takes projects from inception to completion, handling all aspects of the planning and delivery process. Development with care is at the heart of everything we do and therefore we develop all our sites in close consultation with the local community

• Banks Renewables currently operates nine onshore wind farms: i) Armistead; ii) Hazlehead; iii) Heysham South; iv) Hook Moor; v) Lambs Hill; vi) Marr; vii) Middle Muir; viii) Moor House and ix) Penny Hill. A tenth Bank Renewables wind farm, Kype Muir, is due to be completed in March 2019
