Giant Wind Farm Proposed for UK Isle

Proposal would site 300 wind turbines on the Isle of Lewis

Published: 22-Mar-2004

The proposal to build up to 300 giant turbines on the Lewis peat lands is among four wind power schemes being considered for the island.

Barvas Moor to the north of the island would see the siting of some of the world's tallest turbines.

However, much of the area has special protection status and conservation groups have voiced concerns.
