Beinneun Wind Farm

Beinneun is a 32 turbine, 109MW wind farm that is capable of generating sufficient renewable electricity to meet the requirements of more than 87,000 homes each year. That’s the equivalent of saving around 80 Olympic sized swimming pools of coal each year and nearly 300,000 tonnes of CO2 offset. A wind farm is a group of wind turbines. The turbines operate on the simple principle that the wind turns around propeller-like blades, which spin a generator converting the energy into electricity.
