Wind Turbines, Wind Farm, Renewable Energy, Green Power



Causeymire Wind Farm, located at Achkeepster, on the A9 road, 30km south west of John O'Groats, became fully operational in 2004. Causeymire consists of 21 turbines, and is capable of generating more than 48 megawatts (MW) of renewable electricity.

Even taking into consideration times of low wind speeds, Causeymire is powerful enough to supply clean electricity to approximately 25,000 homes each year, put another way, enough to meet the annual domestic electricity needs of Caithness twice over*1.

An application has been made to allow an additional 3 turbines, already consented by the Highland Council, to be constructed and generate on the existing site. This would increase the capacity to more than 55 megawatts, raising the number of homes Causeymire can supply each year to some 28,500.

(2012) Caithness Spittal Hill wind farm plans rejected
The area already has CAUSEYMIRE, Flex Hill and Achairn wind farms, while one at Camster has planning consent and another farm has been proposed for Halsary.

Wind farm 'would affect Wick airport'
The other farms are at Forss, CAUSEYMIRE, Boulfruich, Flexhill, Achairn, Baillie, Camster, Bettyhill, Strathy North, Strathy South, South Shebster, Hill of Lieurary, Burn of Whilk, Stroupster, Bower, Durran, Olgrinmore, Halsary and Wathegar.
