This blog has been constructed to provide information about Ecotricity’s proposal to build a s36 (over 50MW) wind power development on the shores of Loch Awe in Argyll, Scotland.
The site will have 19 turbines with a height to blade tip of 136.5 metres, and is to be known as ‘Upper Sonachan Wind Park’. Potentially affected residents have decided that the information is needed in order that the full impact upon the environment and landscape of this unique area created by such a development can be understood.
Our blog includes photographs taken at 75mm focal length (giving a more accurate representation than the standard developers’ images taken at 50mm) with meticulously prepared visualisations showing the effect in situ of the turbines as proposed by Ecotricity.
Adverse health implications are always a concern so access to information on that front will be provided, as well as a range of other concerns. The blog is intended to enable those who wish to object to this application to do so in the light of comprehensive knowledge of its implications … in short, REASONS WHY NOT.
