Auchtygills wind turbine

One of two turbines generating clean power from Scottish farmland.


Project summary

At the same time Auchtygills was being built, we developed a neighbouring turbine just around the corner. Both projects in Strichen have been exporting renewable electricity to the grid since 2016. As well as helping to accelerate the roll out of renewables in the UK, the projects have a positive social impact locally. At the start of their operational life, Auchtygills and Clayfords made a combined one off community benefit payment towards local council energy efficiency improvements and educational and art projects at the Mintlaw Academy.

In 2022, as part of our Community Benefit Programme, we provided Strichen Playgroup with funding to install double glazing so that they could improve the warmth and energy efficiency of their space.
