WILLOWIND ENERGY

Gass Wind Farm

The proposed Gass Wind Farm will be located on land to the north east of Glenluce in Dumfries and Galloway. It is envisaged that Gass Wind Farm will consist of 9 wind turbines each with a rated power of around 2.3 MW, with a total site capacity of 20.7 MW.

Once operational it is anticipated that Gass Wind Farm would generate enough electricity to power over 10,800 homes. It is estimated that it will take 5.6 years for Gass Wind Farm to pay back the carbon emissions invested in its construction based on the carbon savings that the electricity produced by Gass Wind Farm will generate.

Willowind is committed to delivering benefits to the local communities that the wind farm resides in. To this end Willowind is committed to provide £5,000 per MW of installed capacity over the operational life period of the wind farm (circa £100,000 per annum) into a community benefit fund. This fund will be specifically focused on the financing of schemes designed to boost local education, employment and tourism.

The application and supporting documents were registered by Dumfries and Galloway council on 24th November 2014 and can be found on their website by clicking here. The application reference is 14/P/1/0674.  

 On 26th August 2015 the Gass Wind Farm application received planning consent, subject to finalising Section 75 planning conditions, at the Dumfries & Galloway Planning Application Committee.
