SSE is withdrawing planning applications for two wind farms in the UK
SSE has announced it is to withdraw its Section 36 planning applications for Dalnessie wind farm (81MW) in Sutherland and the proposed extension to Fairburn wind farm (36MW) in Glen Orrin, Ross-shire.
Reviews of both proposals have concluded that continued investment in progressing them is no longer financially viable.
Colin Nicol, SSE Director of Onshore Renewables, said: “SSE continues to have a good pipeline of very strong onshore renewable developments across Scotland. Each project is dealt with on a case-by-case basis and the decision to end Dalnessie and Fairburn Extension means that we can redirect resource onto the best projects in our portfolio, ensuring they more effectively deliver the best value renewable energy for the consumer and SSE, consistent with our commitment to being a responsible developer.”
