Leading independent renewable energy producer, Fred. Olsen Renewables, has launched proposals to create a renewable energy park near Duns. Lees Hill Renewable Energy Park will combine wind power, solar power and battery storage to bring forward an efficient renewable energy development and deliver a consistent energy supply.
The plans for Lees Hill Renewable Energy Park, propose to develop seven turbines up to 200m to tip, alongside 60MW of solar panels and 60MW of battery storage.
Miles McConville, Project Manager at Fred. Olsen Renewables, commented:
“We are excited to launch our proposals to develop Lees Hill Renewable Energy Park. This project has the potential to make a significant contribution towards meeting Scotland’s net zero targets and is a fantastic example of how different renewable technologies can work together to ensure that we are delivering a consistent supply of energy to the grid.
“We are undertaking a range of consultation regarding our plans and we would like to encourage local residents to take part, get in touch, share their views and help us to shape our proposals.”
