Wind turbine map
Our interactive map of renewable energy development across Highland has information on schemes that are "Constructed", "Constructed - Removed" or "Under Construction", "Approved", "In Planning", "Refused" and "Withdrawn” - up to date to 1st January 2017.
Our list of turbines is here - Note: updated 23/05/2017 for error correction.
The map is designed for, and will work best with browsers IE11, Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
The location of a very small number of micro and small turbines where applications were made before 2010 are still to be located requiring being extracted from the paper records used at that time. These will be added when available.
