Strathy North wind farm site is located approximately 7km from Strathy village, Sutherland, in an area of commercial forestry plantation. The 33 turbine project received consent from Scottish Ministers in November 2011 and is now expected to enter main construction in the Autumn this year.
The 'enabling works', which help prepare the site for the main construction works, are almost complete. We expect to start the main construction phase early in the new year.
Wind turbines produce electricity by using the natural power of the wind to drive a generator.

We recognise that our investments in new electricity generation benefit from the co-operation of the local community in a variety of ways, particularly during the construction phase. In recognition of this, our policy is to establish long-term funds to support community projects in areas where we are developing generation projects.
