Welsh developer files plans for 28MW subsidy-free project in the Scottish Highlands.

UK developer Wind2 has filed plans with Highland Council to build the 28MW South Kilbraur wind farm in northern Scotland.

The subsidy-free project, located near Golspie in East Sutherland, consists of seven turbines with a maximum tip height of 149.9 metres.

The site is around one kilometre south of Falck Renewables’ 20MW Kilbraur wind farm (pictured) operational since 2011.

Wind2 said it has offered a £5000 per megawatt community benefit package for South Kilbraur.

Residents within four kilometres of the scheme will be given the opportunity to reduce their energy bills either through a contribution to their electricity bill or via home energy efficiency grants.

Wind2 meanwhile said it will open an office near Inverness early next year.

The Welsh company is working on the development of a number of subsidy-free projects, it added.
