Holm and Hollymill

Holm and Hollymill

Holm and Hollymill is our latest proposed onshore wind farm development near Turiff in Aberdeenshire.

If approved, the two 2.3MW turbines on Holm and Hollymill farms near King Edward village would generate enough renewable electricity to power approximately 2,475 average homes.

Our plans include the provision of a community benefit fund worth £9,200 every year (rising with inflation) for the 25-year life of the project and offering local householders a separate, local tariff which will always be 20% less than the Good Energy standard tariff.

As part of our community engagement process for the project, Good Energy has conducted two public consultations and a survey of local households. Further consultation will take place if the project is given consent, to ensure the community is well informed.

The project is due to be considered by Aberdeenshire County Council planning committee on January 28, and Good Energy looks forward to presenting its case for the project.

If the project is approved, crushed stone and sand for track construction, cabling and temporary works will be sourced from a borrow pit already existing on land at Hollymill, helping to reduce vehicle movements.

Good Energy wants to use local contractors and other suppliers wherever possible during the construction and operation of all our wind and solar farms. If your company might be interested in tendering for work on Holm and Hollymill Wind Farm (subject to planning approval), we’d love to hear from you. Please use the form to give us a few details about your company and the kind of work you’d be interested in and we’ll get in touch if we think there might be suitable opportunities.
