Europe’s Largest Onshore Wind Farm Expands

Europe’s largest onshore wind farm, which is located in East Renfrewshire in Scotland, is expanding. They are increasing the number of turbines on site to 215 from 140- raising electricity generating capacity by two thirds.

The 140 turbines currently at the wind farm, to the south of Glasgow, can produce enough electricity to power 180,000 homes.

The expansion will see its generating capacity increase from 322MW to 539MW – enough to power about 300,000 homes.
