United Kingdom : SCOTTISH MINISTERS approves 19-turbine wind farm proposal.

Scottish Ministers has given nod for proposals for around 20 wind turbines in the Lammermuir Hills.

A 19-turbine wind farm, Aikengall IIa will connect East Lothian and the Scottish Borders.

Once operational, the Aikengall IIa wind farm will generate up to 9.4 million in community benefit, while producing enough electricity to power almost 35,000 homes and bringing jobs and investment to local communities. Renewable energy sources generated more than 56 per cent of gross electricity consumption in Scotland in 2015, helping support our world-leading ambitions to become a low-carbon economy, said Keith Brown, cabinet secretary for economy.

According to Developers Community Windpower, the decision is likely to support the creation of more than 100 jobs.

The location of wind farm is 12.5 kilometres south of Dunbar, six kilometres south of Innerwick and five kilometres northeast of Cranshaws.
