Meikle Hill Wind Farm

Ørsted is developing the Meikle Hill Wind Farm, southeast of Dallas in Moray.

The wind farm will have an installed capacity of 19.8 MW, comprising six turbines that will remain in operation for up to 25 years.

Community


Ørsted is dedicated to being an active partner in the communities where we develop, build, operate and own green energy assets such as onshore wind farms. In Scotland, we offer a community benefit programme committed to supporting communities close to our wind farm sites. We’re keen to support local community projects wherever we can. 

Every year over the lifetime of the wind farm, Ørsted will pay £5,000 into a community development fund for each megawatt of installed capacity.

We are committed to consulting and engaging with the people who live and work near our projects.

A dedicated Community Liaison Group (CLG) was established for the Meikle Hill Wind Farm to ensure that the proposed development involves local people, takes account of their views, and explores opportunities to create long-term economic benefit.

The Meikle Hill CLG currently has representatives from the following groups:

  • Heldon Community Council
  • Dallas Hall Committee
