Good News for Wind Turbine Installers in Scotland!

Good news for Wind Turbine installers in Scotland!

Whilst the Conservatives pledged to “halt the spread of onshore wind farms” in their election manifesto, Fergus Ewing MSP has said that removing wind turbine subsidies was “irrational” and could cost taxpayers up to £3 billion.

The majority of onshore wind farm projects awaiting planning permission, 1,642 out of 2,836 turbines,  are in Scotland. Control over wind turbine subsidies is devolved, meaning it is in the hands of the SNP as to whether subsidies for wind turbines continue in Scotland.
