Glenfarg turbine project ditched after Feed-in Tariffs slashed

Following the government’s decision to cut Feed-in Tariff (FiT) incentive payments, a Kinross-shire community has abandoned its wind turbine project, which was expected to make £2m for groups and causes, The Courier has reported.

Planned cuts to the FiT incentive payments were announced by the Department of Energy & Climate Change last month.

The Glenfarg Renewable Energy Association, which led the bid, calculated that the proposed changes would make its venture financially unworkable.

A planning application was being prepared for the turbine, which was earmarked for land at Jubilee Plantation to the south west of the village.
