Boralex is proposing a wind energy development near Carsphairn known as Shepherds’ Rig Wind Farm. The original proposal developed by Infinergy, comprised of up to 45 wind turbines, with an installed generating capacity of up to 135 megawatts (MW), however following extensive survey work and consultation, the revised scheme of 19 wind turbines has been reduced to 17 wind turbines with a generating capacity of up to 70.2MW. The Scottish Government is the Planning Authority for this project and they were provided with the proposals’ Additional Environmental Information which can be found in the downloads section.  Following further review of the proposal, Scottish Ministers have now consented the project.
