The Thrive Renewables fund has raised £7.7 million in four weeks to build two new onshore windfarms in Scotland with a combined capacity of 11MW. Once built, these will be able to generate enough electricity for more than 8,500 homes. In addition, Bristol-based Thrive has a pipeline of 20MW of new wind projects and 15MW of solar PV which will include both community ground mounted and commercial roof sites. More than a third of Thrive’s existing portfolio is in Scotland, including a major contribution to the construction of a three turbine, 7MW wind farm near Kirkcaldy and a 50% a share in a three turbine, 6MW wind farm development in West Lothian.
