Windy Standard I Repower

Windy Standard I is the earliest phase of the Windy Standard Wind Farm, and has been operating for over 25 years.

We are exploring opportunities to replace the existing Windy Standard I turbines with new, larger, modern turbines that utilise the latest technology.

Our repowering proposals would:

  • Reduce the number of turbines
  • Increase the generating capacity
  • Share existing infrastructure – including tracks and grid connection
Status Operational
Number of turbines 36
Location 8 km North East of Carsphairn and 10 km south of New Cumnock, Scotland, DG7 3UF
Type of turbines 600 kW
Installed capacity 21.6 MW

We have been continuing our consultation regarding our proposals to repower Windy Standard Wind Farm.

We will be holding three public events in November to engage local residents and key stakeholders, provide an update on how our plans have progressed and to gather feedback. We hope you will be able to attend and help us to promote the events.

The events are taking place on:

Monday 15th November - 11am – 7pm at Dalmellington Community Centre, 38 Ayr Rd, Dalmellington, Ayr, KA6 7SJ

Tuesday 16th November - 11am – 7pm at Lagwyne Hall, Carsphairn, DG7 3TQ

Thursday 18th November - 11am – 7pm at New Cumnock Working Men’s Club, 103 Afton Bridgend, New Cumnock, Cumnock, KA18 4JG

We appreciate that not everyone will be able to attend. However, the materials are available to download below and are encouraging people to: 


To date, Windy Standard I has provided over £500,000 to communities surrounding the wind farm through their community benefit funds. If consented, the repower of Windy Standard I will provide over £7.5m throughout the lifespan of the project.

We believe that the repower of Windy Standard I can continue to support the local economy and help to meet local aspirations.

We want to work closely with the communities surrounding Windy Standard I to ensure that the community benefit can address identified local challenges such as housing stock and energy consumption, in addition to recreation, tourism and ecology.

We want to hear your views on how the wind farm can continue to support your community and meet local aspirations. Get in touch communities@fredolsen.co.uk.
