Europe's largest onshore wind farm Whitelee set for massive expansion

Whitelee is already Europe’s largest onshore wind farm. It creates enough electricity to power 180.000 homes. Once extended, it will be able to create enough power for 300.000 homes.

Over the next two years Whitelee will be ready to almost double it’s power becoming one of the most biggest wind farms in the world. Scottish Power Renewables said in a statement that this expansion will cement Whitelee’s status of Europe’s largest wind farm. Building the extention will create over 200 jobs. Environmental campaigners welcomed the news, which came as the firm secured a deal with French company Alstom to build the turbines.
