Knockskae windfarm was first proposed by PNE Energy in 2013. PNE UK was bought by Brookfield, a Canadian company, in 2015. The windfarm is partly located on Knockskae Hill, Back Fell and Knockgardner. Details of the windfarm can still be found on the PNE website.
The site contains some useful information including contact details and information regarding the Community Liaison Group (CLG). The first CLG meeting was held at The Willie Wastles Inn, Crosshill on the 13th May 2013 and has met over the course of the project’s development. The Minutes from the first meeting can be found here.
For further information regarding community development the team can be contacted on 0131 243 9100 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
