May 27 (Renewables Now) - Scottish renewables developer Muirhall Energy is seeking approval for the construction of a 409-MW wind park in the Scottish Borders council area, it announced on Friday.

The application for the Tevion Wind Farm project has been filed with the government of Scotland.

Muirhall Energy’s proposal envisages the installation of 62 turbines at a site east of Teviothead and also includes plans for a solar photovoltaic (PV) array and battery storage capacity. The developer’s original intentions were to install 75 turbines at the site, with a combined capacity of around 522 MW, but the initial proposal was trimmed in order to take into account feedback from local residents and community groups.

Provided that the government greenlights the scheme, Muirhall Energy intends to launch a community investment initiative that will enable community groups to collectively own up to 10% of the wind farm.

According to the developer’s estimates, the wind park will be able to generate electricity to supply around 440,000 homes in the UK.
