Wind farm developer Infinergy has applied for a scoping opinion from the Scottish Government for an extension to the 13-turbine Tom nan Clach Wind Farm.
The developer, in a joint venture with the Earl of Cawdor, known as Nan Clach Extension Limited, proposes to submit an application for eight more wind turbines and associated infrastructure at Cawdor Estate and Lethen Estate. It could meet the demands of up to 20,598 homes.
Esbjorn Wilmar, managing director of Infinergy said: “We are confident, based on the findings of the Scottish Government Reporter at the first Tom nan Clach appeal process that there is landscape capacity.
“There is also grid capacity available thanks to the upgrade work carried out around the operational scheme and wider reinforcements.”
Infinergy has been undertaking survey work, particularly of birds, for the past two years.
