Whitelee Windfarm
A forty-five metre blade can be seen in proximity to a wind turbine at the Whitelee Windfarm Visitor Centre. Construction began on 9th October 2006 on Europe’s largest on-shore windfarm operated by Scottish Power Renewables. The initial 140 turbines covering approximately 13,590 acres at Whitelee Windfarm are capable of producing up to 322MW of electricity. A proposal to extend the site by another 130 MW (36 turbines) has been approved by the Scottish Government. A second extension, which will add a further 140MW (39 turbines), has also been approved. The two extensions will be built at the same time. The visitor centre is managed by Glasgow Science Centre. A network of 56 miles of paths gives access to the local countryside.
