A Successful Partnership
Kilmac Energy develops, owns and operates onshore wind turbine projects in both rural and urban settings throughout Scotland. There is more to creating successful wind projects than you might think and Kilmac Energy is here to partner landowners through the entire Wind Turbine lifecycle. There are no outgoings for the landowner from beginning to end of the project and all we ask is for your ongoing collaboration and patience as we progress the project through the complex Scottish planning system.
- Site access – can you get the turbine physically onto the land (including the roads)
- Grid connectivity – how close are you to a grid connection and is there available capacity (Kilmac insure this is secured at Site Promotion stage with outlays in excess of circa £200k required regularly.
- Social & ecological issues – how close are you to the nearest houses, are you in an SSSI, national park etc or are you within aviation routes.
- Cumulative impact – what other developments have already taken place in your area
These assessments will determine the environmental impact the turbine development will have on the site and will consider a wide range of issues including, but not limited to ecology, landscape and visual impact and noise. Once complete the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is submitted in support of the Planning Application for the scheme.
We understand the sensitivities of wind energy development and therefore seek to consult and involve the local community at the key stages of site promotion; dealing with enquiries and concerns in an honest and open way at all times. We will also submit a grid connection application to the local electricity network operator, which can regularly require upfront payments of over £200k.
