Scotland’s first wind farm to be developed through a partnership between two charities has taken a big turn forward with the conclusion of its financing package and completion of turbine foundations. The Hoprigshiels wind farm project – comprising three x 2.5-MW Nordex wind turbines – is located in Berwickshire. Completion and commissioning is expected towards the end of this year. The two charities involved, Berwickshire Housing Association and Community Energy Scotland, are taking the project forward through a joint venture company, Berwickshire Community Renewables. The windfarm will supply electricity to the National Grid over a 25-year period and the revenues from the sale of power will help support the charities’ social purposes.
