East Merkland, South Lanarkshire

Installation type: Wind Farm

Installation size: 13.5 MW

CleanEarth are proposing three wind turbines on Land at East Merkland, Strathaven, Lanarkshire, ML10 6RP.

The proposal has an estimated annual energy yield of approximately 44 GWh, the equivalent of powering over 12,000 South Lanarkshire homes. The project will save more than 9,400 metric tonnes of carbon annually, with a predicted lifetime saving of over 330,000 metric tonnes – making a significant contribution to Scotland’s carbon reduction targets to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2045, and the UK’s target to achieve this by 2050.

A public consultation was held on Wednesday 22 November 2023.
