The project has been built as a joint venture between Thrive Renewables and GreenPower - an organisation we have built a strong working relationship with over many years and who are based nearby to help oversee work on site. The name of the joint venture company is Green Breeze Energy. The Drumduff wind project was initiated by a family consortium who sold the project to us in summer 2016.
The 6MW project is forecast to generate enough renewable electricity to meet the annual demand of 5,458 UK homes and construction was completed allowing the first export to the grid in early summer 2017.
In September 2018, the wind farm hosted a family-oriented public open day for local residents, investors and renewable energy enthusiasts to get close to the turbines, participate in a range of engaging energy-related activities and talk with the team. At the open day, the wind farm was officially opened by Alison Johnstone MSP.
