 Comment

Scottish and Southern Energy Renewables is proposing a 600Mw pumped storage scheme which would extract, store and release energy, to the north-west of Lochy Lochy in the Great Glen.

The development would be Scotland's biggest ever hydro scheme but objectors warn it could damage tourism.
The pump storage hydro scheme is designed to "soak up" excess power generated by wind and wave farms, using it to pump water up to a reservoir.

Power firm's payments to locals 'mean'
The villages bearing the full brunt of the construction of the COIRE GLAS and Balmacaan pumped storage hydro schemes in the hills above the Great Glen are to receive 500 per megawatt during the five years of construction.
