Mid Hill Wind Farm
The Mid Hill Wind Farm is located mainly on forestry land in Fetteresso Forest south west of Aberdeen. Mid Hill Wind Farm consists of 33 turbines and has an installed capacity of 75 MW and is able to provide electricity generation equivalent to the consumption of 31,000 homes on an annual average basis.
Investing in the local community
Whilst Mid Hill's owner builds and operates wind farms, it also focuses on reducing the impact on local communities and the area's ecology. There will be a Community Benefit Fund established as part of its ongoing commitments to communities in the vicinity of the wind farm. The purpose of the fund is to enable communities to carry out improvements to their local area in ways which benefit the local environment, local amenities or tourism. Each year the wind farm allocates an amount of money to the community council, which administers its disbursement to the community.
