Wind turbine planned for land at North-east farm

Proposals have been lodged for a new wind turbine.

Plans submitted by Orenda Energy Solutions to Moray Council seek permission for the turbine on land at Mains of Pitlurg, in Keith.

Planning documents state: “The proposed wind turbine for installation at Mains of Pitlurg Farm is the small to medium scale Orenda SkyeTM 49kW machine with a 23.4m tower and 18.9m rotor diameter.

“The proposal will generate electricity from a renewable, non-depleting source.

“The production of such a clean energy, which will be fed into the grid and utilised on a local level will ensure a further contribution to lowering carbon emissions.”
