MSP gets up close to windfarm

THE first turbine components for the Minnygap windfarm arrived in Annandale last month.

And MSP for South of Scotland Emma Harper visited the construction site, near Johnstonebridge, last week.
She was given a tour of the 25 megawatt project site by Renewable Energy Systems (RES) employees.
Minnygap windfarm is expected to generate enough electricity each year to meet the needs of around 16,000 homes.
Ms Harper said: “I am grateful to RES for offering me a tour of the site.
“I wanted to see for myself, the civil engineering and construction challenges facing RES as they attempt build with optimal community involvement. It is useful for me to be better informed when listening to constituents who are both pro and anti onshore wind.”
Construction of Minnygap Wind Farm began in October 2015, and it is expected to be fully operational early next year.
