West Dykehead, South Lanarkshire

Installation Type: Two wind turbines

Installation Size: 7.6 MW

CleanEarth are proposing to develop two wind turbines, with a tip height of up to 149.9m, on land at West Dykehead, South Lanarkshire.

The proposal has an estimated annual energy yield of 26 GWh; the equivalent of powering 6,700 homes in South Lanarkshire. It will save in excess of 5,580 tonnes of carbon annually with a predicted lifetime saving of almost 195,000 tonnes – making a significant contribution to Scotland’s target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2045.

The proposed site falls within the Sandford and Upper Avondale Community Council and will provide a community benefit fund for the local community.

An online public consultation was held on 28 October 2022.
