Dealing with Energy Issues
The need for more renewable energy sources is greater than ever. Rising power prices, fears over security of supply and climate change have put the issue of energy high in everyone’s mind. National and regional authorities have acknowledged that renewable energy is an important solution to help meet the challenges of our modern lifestyle and its ever increasing energy demands. Scotland has set a target of 100% of electricity sourced from renewables by 2020. There is a lot that need to be done before this target is met!
Apart from the low carbon and energy security advantages that are felt on a national level, Limekiln Wind Farm would provide benefits to the local community as well. For instance, a wind farm that moves to the construction and operational stage can create various opportunities for local contractors.
Infinergy is committed to community benefits associated with Limekiln Wind Farm. We will be working with the local community to help determine the best kind of benefits for the area. Typically a wind farm has a life span of up to 25 years so we want to make sure the benefits attached to the development make a significant contribution to the regeneration and socio-economic welfare of this part of the Highlands.
