Force 9 Energy, working with the Abercairny Estate, has identified a potential opportunity to develop a nine turbine wind farm at Mull Hill, approximately 4km northeast of Crieff in Perthshire.

The proposed turbines would have a potential maximum height to blade tip of 104 metres and a generating capacity of up to 22.5MW. These turbines could supply enough clean, green energy to power the equivalent of approximately 11,322 homes.*

Alongside the economic benefits that the project would bring to the region, the proposal would also help the Scottish Government to meet its renewable obligations to cut its dependence on fossil fuels, saving approximately 25,425 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually, compared with conventional fossil fuel sources (source RenewableUK).

Mull Hill predominantly comprises of rough grazing used for rough shooting by the estate and for the grazing of sheep and cattle by the tenant farmer.

The proposal is part of a comprehensive range of measures by the Abercairny Estate that would help fund other environmental and conservation projects, including work to revitalise habitat for wild game and other wildlife, and refurbishments to buildings on the estate to help promote local tourism.

*This figure is based upon a 27% load factor, calculated from site data and an average UK annual domestic electricity consumption of 4,700kWh.
