New wind farm proposal blows across the horizon 

Credit:  Fife Today, www.fifetoday.co.uk 23 June 2011 ~~

The company behind plans to build a wind farm near Kennoway has launched a proposal for another development near Largoward.

West Coast Energy’s latest plan includes five 100-metre high turbines with an individual blade length of 40m on farmland north of the B940 road between Largoward and Dunino.

Named Lingo Wind Farm, it would have an installed capacity of 12.5MW, but is still in the early stages of development with no application for planning yet submitted to Fife Council.

Jonathan Cawley, project manager for Lingo wind farm, said: “The site benefits from a high wind resource making it ideally placed for a five-turbine scheme.

“West Coast Energy aims to deliver a small, high quality wind farm development with a focus on community involvement.

“As with all our developments, West Coast Energy will be looking to create a purposeful and effective dialogue with the local community at an early stage in order that the community view is taken into account as the proposals move forward.”

At West Coast’s Devon Wood site, near Kennoway, the company has offered the surrounding communities £3500 per year for each installed megawatt.

The Lingo Farm development would also have a community incentive either in a similar cash bonus or more ambitiously it could offer communities a percentage of ownership.

With Lingo Farm being located away from larger settlements this would include Pittenweem and Anstruther.
