Powering on with island wind plan  

Shetland is bidding to become Scotland’s renewable energy powerhouse with plans to build one of the world’s largest community wind farms.

Scottish and Southern Energy is to sign a partnership agreement with Shetland Islands Council on Friday.

The project, which depends on planning permission and a seabed cable, would see the building of a 200-turbine farm.

It would produce about 600 megawatts, which SSE said would be enough to power a quarter of all Scotland’s homes.

Developers also estimated the project could generate about £20m a year for the community.

The agreement between the island’s council and Scottish and Southern Energy will be signed at the Busta House Hotel.

It was at the same venue nearly 20 years ago that another agreement was reached with the oil industry securing Shetland’s economic future.
