Another 13 MW without support

Another merchant wind project is being built in Britain, this time a 13 MW facility in Scotland. Output from the plant will be sold on the open market to satisfy consumer demand for green power instead of being supported under a Scottish Renewables Obligation contract. ScottishPower is now installing 20 Vestas V47 wind turbines at Hare Hill near New Cumnock in Ayrshire for operation in November. The project is being built in anticipation of Britain's new obligation on suppliers to buy specified quotas of renewables power, due to take effect in 2001, and the new climate change levy on the business use of energy. Output will be sold by ScottishPower's supply business, which expects to market green power aggressively in the new electricity market.
