One of the largest wind farms in Scotland has officially opened in Dumfries & Galloway.

The ScottishPower Renewables 136Mw Harestanes  wind farm includes 68 turbines, with the expectation of meeting the electrical demand of over 73,000 homes.

Over the last two years the company claims the £160 million project has supported 150 jobs.

Scottish Energy Minister Fergus Ewing said: “Projects like this provide considerable benefits to reducing our carbon emissions and play an important part in helping Scotland reach its target of 100% of electricity demand generated from renewables as well as contributing to sustainable economic growth, investment and jobs.”
