Turbine plan raises concern  

In the week that it was announced that an Orkney company is to help community groups across the islands create the biggest wind energy project of its kind in the world, a newly formed pressure group has urged members of the public to make their views and concerns known on the siting of wind turbines around the county.

Stromness-based Scotrenewables (Wind Power) Ltd has been contracted to assist eight groups across the county in developing income-generating commercial wind turbine projects that will feed revenue back into their communities.

The company has been awarded a contract by the Highlands and Islands Community Energy Company (HICEC) to advise each of the communities on environmental considerations as they put together planning applications for their projects.

A new group ‘Orkney Skyline Concern’, is urging the public to let their views be made known, and calling for the Orkney landscape to be protected for the future.
