Scottish wind development/generation company MacWind introduced their proposed Cromarty Wind Turbine Development at a public meeting this evening. Through Bright Spark Energy Ltd, Macwind is pursuing a three turbine development at Rosefarm and Davidson. The proposed configuration would have a capacity of 7 megawatts, generating enough electricity for around 3850 homes and producing a financial ‛Community Benefit´ of approximately £35,000 a year.
MacWind Director Duncan Cameron summarised the detailed assessments underway as part of the planning process and answered questions from the floor. If the planning application (to be submitted later this year) is successful, the turbines should be operating within three to five years.
