Claim by Stornoway Trust that crofters’ wind farm development could undermine economic case

The economic case for an interconnector transmission cable to the islands ‘is in danger of being undermined by delays and uncertainties’ caused by a rival wind farm plan proposed by four Lewis crofting townships, according to The Stornoway Trust. The Trust is warning that unless Lewis Wind Power’s (LWP) plans can now proceed unhindered, the future of large-scale wind farm development on the islands could be at risk.

Previous wildlife impact studies have focused on proposed wind farms rather than ones already up and running. The European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) began generating electricity in July. Operated by Swedish company Vattenfall, . . . Complete story »
