Good news: Europe’s largest onshore renewable energy farm to expand


The BBC is carrying a nice piece reporting on some good energy news; the largest onshore windfarm in Europe was just approved for expansion.

Scottish Power Renewables will now be able to install a further 36 turbines, bringing the new capacity to 452 MW. When completed it will be able to power 250,000 homes.

In addition, a £2 million visitor center will be constructed, and the entire wind farm opened up to the public for walking and cycling during the summer.
