Co-investing in Drumduff wind farm

We joined forces with GreenPower to purchase the 6MW project on the site of an old open cast coal mine.

With a strong working relationship spanning many years, we approached Scottish renewable developer – GreenPower – to co-invest in a 6MW onshore wind project with us, located on an old coal mine to the north of Blackridge in West Lothian.

With Thrive and GreenPower providing the funding and GreenPower handling the day-to-day management of the project, we bought the Drumduff wind farm in the summer of 2016 from a family consortium.

Construction was completed allowing the first export to the grid in early summer 2017 and the 6MW project now generates enough renewable electricity to meet the annual demand of approximately 5,458 UK homes.
