Our policy is one of openness and excellent public engagement and we are happy to address any queries which may arise.  Please contact the Project Manager, Keith McDougall via email (, in the first instance.

The site is located between the villages of Greengairs and Caldercruix in North Lanarkshire and was originally granted planning consent in January 2019.

An application to vary the initial consent was submitted to North Lanarkshire Council on 24th October 2019. This application was to facilitate the installation of modern, more efficient turbines, capable of producing approximately twice as much electricity as the original consented development. To achieve additional generation, the overall height of the turbines was increased from 125m to blade tip to 149.9m which has allowed the full potential and efficiency of the project to be realised.

On 24th September 2020, the variation application was consented and on 10th January 2022, pre-construction preparatory works began on site.

Turbine deliveries took place from October 2022 until February 2023, with all works  completed by June 2023.

Once construction commenced, we were delighted to announce  our Initial Investment Fund worth £40,000 to local organisations, charities and clubs for the Greengairs East project.

Groups from the surrounding areas of Greengairs, Plains, Upperton, Caldercruix and Longriggend were invited to apply for an award of up to £2,500 per application. Successful applicants could spend the money on projects they prioritised, such as job creation, training opportunities, improved amenities and sports facilities or environmental enhancements.

Debbie Rae, Communities Manager at Muirhall Energy, said: “At Muirhall Energy, we pride ourselves on our excellent relationships with communities. We have already worked closely with the local community and look forward to continuing to work in partnership as construction progresses. The establishment of the Initial Investment Fund has benefitted local groups and organisations with over £42,000 of funding.”

Once the wind farm is operational, a Community Investment Fund of £180,000 a year for the lifetime of the wind farm will also be established. This will be shared among local community councils and will net residents £4.5 million over the lifetime of the project. With a generating capacity of up to 36 megawatts (MW), Greengairs East will provide enough clean green energy to power more than 32,000 homes.

Community Benefits

We were pleased to receive the following testimonial from George McCutcheon

Over the past few years we have worked with Muirhall Energy and have always found them to be friendly and approachable. They have a great community engagement programme. 

They have provided support to Plains through many projects. In particular, PCF run the annual Bonnie Barrels competition. The village has approximately 100 wooden barrel planters. Each year Muirhall Energy has sponsored the competition by providing trophies for the winning barrels. 

Muirhall  assist PCF with the donation of selection boxes and Easter eggs to every pupil in the 3 schools based in Plains. Muirhall Energy quickly also came to our aid and ensured a section of damaged boardwalk was replaced and repaired after having been subject to fireraisings. 

Plains Community Futures certainly could not have achieved as much within the village without the support and engagement ofMuirhall Energy. We are glad to be able to continue to count on them as a trusted partner. 

We fully support Muirhall Energy in their ambitious project to deliver Greengairs East Windfarm and further green energy to our local area”.
