ScottishPower Renewables (“SPR”) has operated Beinn an Tuirc Windfarm on the Kintyre peninsula since 2001 and is committed to maximising opportunities for local communities to benefit from their projects.
- BaT1 - 45 turbines up to 30 MW - complete
- BaT2 - 19 turbines up to 38 MW - complete
- BaT3 - 14 turbines up to 50 MW – construction started September 2019
Beinn an Tuirc Windfarm Phase 3, is a 50MW installed capacity wind scheme development by SPR on the Forestry and Land Scotland estate.
EKREG Ltd has Memorandums of Understanding with each of the above three Community Councils to advise and help them deliver the CSO offer that has been brought to the Community by SPR.
The rationale for incorporating EKREG Ltd was to enable a single point of trusted contact for the Community and provide a vehicle to proactively engage with developers and potential lenders including the Scottish Government, grant authorities and the Local Authorities. For the avoidance of doubt, EKREG Ltd will not be the final community investment vehicle which invests in BaT3.
If the Shared Ownership in Beinn an Tuirc 3 Term Offer from SPR is financially attractive to the Community, this could be the first multi-community investment in a non-subsidy windfarm in Scotland.
