Daer Wind Farm 132kV Connection Project

SP Energy Networks (SPEN) have a licence obligation to provide electricity generators with a connection to the electricity system in this area and, in line with this, is proposing to construct a new 132 kilovolt (kV) overhead line (OHL) to connect Daer Wind Farm to the transmission grid system at the existing Moffat substation in Dumfries and Galloway. The new single overhead line will be supported on double ‘H’ design wooden poles and will be approximately 10 kilometres (km) in length.

SPEN is now seeking views on the proposals and the routeing work which has been undertaken to date for the Project. As part of the consultation, we would be grateful for your views on the following:

  • The preferred route for the connection;
  • Any of the alternative route options considered during the routeing process; and
  • Any other issues, suggestions, or feedback you would like SPEN to consider.

Our in-person public consultation event will take place at:

Moffat Town Hall: High Street, Moffat DG10 9HF, Monday 26th February 2024, 3pm till 8pm

Please note - Comments at this stage are informal and are made to allow SPEN to determine whether changes to our preferred route are necessary. Following establishment of the proposed route, SP Energy Networks intends to submit an application to the Scottish Ministers for consent under section 37 of the Electricity Act 1989 and deemed planning permission under section 57 of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997. Submission of the Section 37 application is currently anticipated for March 2023. Following this, the Scottish Government will undertake a formal consultation, during which there will be further opportunity to comment on our proposals directly to Scottish Ministers.
