With the assistance of a CARES loan from the Scottish Government, HDT is currently progressing work towards a planning application to add a single wind turbine adjacent to the existing Dummuies wind farm close to Huntly. The wind farm has recently been purchased by IKEA who have given their commitment to cooperate with us to help us to realise our ambitions. We expect to submit the planning application in the second half of 2012. If approved, revenue from this source is expected to come on stream in early 2014. This income, which will be shared with Grampian Housing Association as part of our strategic partnership with them, will be used to fund HDT core costs and to finance community projects.
Information prepared for community consultations on the project in September 2012 can be found here:
