EDF Energy Renewables has achieved a UK wind farm hat-trick.

Pearie Law in West Lothian, Corriemoillie in the Highlands and Beck Burn near Carlisle are all up and running and generating power.

They have a total capacity of 97.7MW, capable of producing enough electricity to power more than 59,000 homes.

The energy firm now owns and operates 696MW of wind farms across the UK, generating enough power for 423,000 households.

Matthieu Hue, EDF Energy Renewables Chief Executive said: “This is great news for us and we are very pleased to have an additional three wind farms to add to our portfolio.

“They will make an important contribution to the supply of low carbon electricity and will benefit the local communities too.”

A new study commissioned by Scottish Renewables found the UK could deliver 1GW of new onshore wind capacity without adding to energy bills.
