An Aberdeenshire wind farm will supply more than 500 homes in south-west
England with power under a new agreement confirmed today, further
underlining the strength of Scotland’s renewable energy sector.
Sustainable energy firm Thrive Renewables and gas and electricity supplier
Bristol Energy have struck a supply deal for 0.8 megawatts of wind power
from an onshore site near Strichen, enough energy to power around 550 homes.
The supplier purchased the renewable electricity produced by Thrive’s
Clayfords wind farm for 12 months starting from September this year, in a
deal completed via online auction site E-power.
