Local Benefits now flowing from Allt Dearg

Just 8 months after its completion Allt Dearg Community Wind Farm is doing just as it says on the tin... generating lots of green energy on the hill whilst providing much needed cash for community projects in and around Ardrishaig.

The Allt Dearg development team always knew that Cruach a'Phubuill - the ridge that hosts the 12  turbines - was a good wind site, but the first half year of generation has put the project in the premier league of UK wind farms with a capacity factor of over 50%, well beyond our expectations for a new wind farm.

Meanwhile, Ardrishaig Community Trust has already received its first payment of £50,000 by virtue of its partnership share in the project, and this is now being put to good use for the benefit of the local commnunity.

For details of Allt Dearg and its proposed sister site Srondoire, currently under consideration by Argyll & Bute Council, see the new website which charts the history of this unique proejct, local benefits and the tema's plans for the future.
