The proposal for the project comprises up to 2 turbines, each with a blade tip height of up to 149.9 metres, and a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS). The project will have a total installed capacity of around 20MW.
Detailed visual materials including layouts, photomontages and wireframes have been prepared and will be available to view at public events and through The Highland Council Planning Portal, when the planning application is live.
We anticipate that a planning application will be submitted to The Highland Council in Autumn 2023.
Swarclett Wind Farm will have the potential to generate around 35,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of electricity annually, sufficient to meet the needs of around 10,000 homes, while offsetting approximately 15,000 tonnes of CO2 per year*.
