Crosbie Wind Farm
Galileo is exploring the potential for an onshore renewable development, Crosbie Wind Farm, on an upland area in between the towns of West Kilbride, Dalry and Fairlie in North Ayrshire.
We are in the initial stages of the proposed project’s development and we would like to start a conversation with the local community about how a sustainable development project in the area could help to support the local economy and actively contribute to Scotland’s renewable energy and climate change targets.
The initial proposals envisage:
- Up to 13 turbines, with a maximum tip height of up to 200m.
- A Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) to store the renewable energy that is produced on the site.
- The proposal will have the capacity to generate over 78MW clean, green energy.
- Crosbie Wind Farm could power up to 51,289 homes per year – ref: https://www.renewableuk.com/page/UKWEDExplained
We are in the initial stages of the proposed project’s development and are enthusiastic to hear from the local community about how a sustainable development project in the area could help support the local economy in North Ayrshire and actively contribute to Scotland’s renewable energy and climate change targets.
We were pleased to welcome over 150 people to our first round of public consultation events in November 2023 which were held in Dalry, Ardrossan, West Kilbride, Millport and Fairlie. We are currently analysing the feedback received at the events and are refining the proposal.
We intend to hold a second round of public consultation in Spring 2024, and will share details of those events on this project website and with the local community ahead of the events taking place.
