The Development

Jamie Leslie

Due to the Ongoing COVID 19 crisis, Muirhall staff are working to strict covid19 protocols to protect our team and the community throughout the pandemic.  Despite these restrictions, we remain committed to our policy of openness and public engagement and we are happy to address any queries which may arise.  Please contact the Project Manager, Jamie Leslie via email (jl@muirhallenergy.co.uk), if you would like to discuss the current application in more detail, or to arrange a call.

The site, located between Greengairs and Caldercruix, in North Lanarkshire was originally granted consent in January 2019. 

An application to vary the current consent was submitted to North Lanarkshire Council on 24th of October 2019. That application was to facilitate the installation of modern turbines, capable of producing approximately twice as much electricity as the previously consented development. To achieve the additional generation, the overall height of the turbines has increased from 125m to blade tip to149.9m, which allows the full potential and efficiency of the project to be realised.

On the 24th of September 2020, the variation application was consented. Muirhall Energy is currently working to discharge the conditions attached to the consent and it is anticipated that construction will commence in 2021.

Muirhall Energy will arrange local information events prior to construction to allow communities and businesses to understand more about the project. Due to the ongoing COVID 19 restrictions it is currently unclear how these will be delivered, but Muirhall Energy is exploring a number of options which will allow us to organise these events, while adhering to social distancing guidelines..

Share Ownership & Community Benefits

Memorandums of Understanding have been agreed with four community groups to administer a community investment fund of £5,000 per megawatt of installed capacity. We anticipate the combined annual fund will be in the region of £192,000 per annum, or £4.8m over the lifetime of the wind farm; a boost from £120,000 per annum, reflecting the increased generation potential of the higher tip-height.

Muirhall Energy is committed to working with local companies to maximise the wider economic benefits of the development in the community.
