Plans to increase the size of a major windfarm have been given the greenlight by the Scottish Government.

An extra 15 turbines are to be built at Kype Muir site in South Lanarkshire, along with the existing 226 currently in development.

The 41 turbine project is estimated to produce enough electricity to power more than 80,000 homes when it is completed.

Colin Anderson, development director at Banks Renewables, said: “Construction is already underway on the approved main Kype Muir Wind Farm.

“We are delighted that the Scottish Government has approved the expansion of the Kype Muir Wind Farm, which will bring substantial environmental benefits and a potentially transformative economic boost to the area.”

“Both the government and the council clearly appreciated of the positive impact the Kype Muir Wind Farm can have on the surrounding area and the people who live there.”
