Whiteneuk Wind Farm Proposal
Whiteneuk is a potential onshore wind farm located around 3km from Corsock in Dumfries and Galloway.
In June 2020, Vattenfall first published initial plans for a 35 turbine wind farm building on earlier proposals by other developers around the Loch Urr area and extending south towards Whiteneuk Hill. In 2022, following the gathering of extensive environmental data and local feedback, these plans were then refined to a 27 turbine development.
As of September 2022, Vattenfall’s plans for Whiteneuk Wind Farm are on hold.
Designing the best wind farm we can
At Vattenfall we invest considerable time, resources and care to design the best wind farms we can, striking a balance between the need for a fossil fuel free future and the aspirations of local communities. To achieve this at Whiteneuk, we undertook extensive environmental studies and engaged with local stakeholders.
