Knockskae exhibition

PNE Wind UK have posted newsletters to all households in the local area with an invitation to attend the first round of their exhibitions.
Tuesday, 11th June 4pm – 8pm McCandlish Hall, Straiton
Wednesday, 12th June 4pm – 8pm Maybole Town Hall
The photograph above is of Back Fell viewed from near Tairlaw and shows how high this hill is at 428m. It is clearly visible from the M77 above Fenwick so any development would be seen from a considerable distance.
Access roads, tracks between turbines and any ancillary buildings are not shown on the map printed in the newsletter. The web address given on the newsletter for further information does not work.

PNE targets Scotland for Wind Energy – and easy permits

“PNE Wind U.K., a unit of Germany’s PNE Wind AG (PNE3), said Scotland will be its focus as it develops as much as 591 megawatts of onshore wind farms in Britain, enough to power about 260,000 homes.

All but one of its sites are in Scotland, where acquiring permits can be swifter than elsewhere, Managing Director George Mager said in a telephone interview.”

PNE is the developer of the proposed Dalmorton wind farm. See the rest of this article in Bloomberg News, here: www.bloomberg.com/news
