Project Location

The current proposals for Cloud Hill Wind Farm include 14 turbines with a maximum tip height of 180 m, and potentially energy storage.

The environmental survey work at the site commenced in early 2021, and has informed the preliminary wind farm design which has been the subject of a Scoping Request to the Scottish Government and consultees. 

Throughout the life of the project, we are committed to fully engaging with members of the local community. To date we have presented the project to the Royal Burgh of Sanquhar Community Council and the Scoping Report has been issued to Royal Burgh of Sanquhar and surrounding community councils including Kirkconnel and Kelloholm, Penpont and Durisdeer.
