Hearthstanes Wind Farm


Hearthstanes Wind Farm

We are committed to working closely with local communities and stakeholders to bring forward proposals that are responsive to local views and opinions, help to support our net zero aspirations and make a positive contribution to the local economy.
Project Overview

We are exploring the potential to develop Hearthstanes Wind Farm, located on the Menzion area of Hearthstanes Estate, approximately 3km south of Tweedsmuir in the Scottish Borders.

We hope that this website helps to provide information on how the project is progressing, as well helping you to share your views and get involved.

We are at the very early stages of our proposals. Our application for an anemometer mast – which will help us to measure wind speeds at the site – was recently approved. 

The information from this mast will help to inform any future planning application for a wind farm – which will be supported by a range of public consultation, including local events. 

Our first round of events took place on the 20th and 21st June 2023. Have your say here! 

Further information can be found in our document library.
