These are the latest project updates for An Càrr Dubh Wind Farm
We held our second exhibition in November 2021 to share our updated plans for the An Càrr Dubh Wind Farm, which included three in-person public exhibitions in Ford, Dalavich and Inveraray and online consultation event.
A report has been published on how to maximise the economic benefits of clean power for consumers while ensuring that the UK reaches net zero emissions at the lowest cost.
For the sixth consecutive year, Statkraft have released its Low Emissions Scenario - an analysis of the energy world towards 2050.
The An Càrr Dubh Wind Farm project team wishes to thank everyone who took the time to attend the drop-in sessions on the 9, 10 and 11 of November in Ford, Dalavich and Inveraray.
The second Public Exhibition for An Càrr Dubh Wind Farm opened on 1 November 2021.
We are looking forward to holding a second public exhibition for An Càrr Dubh Wind Farm in November 2021.
The Gaelic spelling of the project name (Car Duibh) was raised with us during the first consultation. It is important to us that the name reflects the regional dialect in relation to Gaelic and the wind farm location. The wind farm will now be called An Càrr Dubh.
The original Gaelic ‘càrr’ meaning bog or moss has been rendered as ‘Loch nan Car’ by the Ordnance Survey, which is where we originally selected ‘Car’ from for the name of the project. We have been further advised that if combining ‘car’ (bog or moss) and ‘dubh’ (black), the correct Gaelic would be ‘(An) Càrr Dubh’ (the double r differentiates from càr meaning automobile).
The name change will go live on 28 October 2021. We will updated the website web address www.ancarrdubh.co.uk but all other contact details rename the same and anyone that visits the old website address will be redirected to the new address so we do not expect any issues with the updated name version.
In June and July 2021 we held an online exhibition to share our plans for Car Duibh Wind Farm.
Thank you to residents and interested groups who provided feedback during the consultation period for our Car Duibh Wind Farm proposal. We will be considering all the feedback as we continue to shape and develop the project.
Thank you to all residents and interested groups who took the time to visit our Car Duibh Wind Farm virtual exhibition between 14 June and 2 July 2021.
One of the most common questions we are asked when developing our projects is 'Why here?".
Today, Monday 14 June 2021, marks the start of the Car Duibh Wind Farm online exhibition.
We are pleased to have submitted a Scoping Request to the Scottish Government to progress our plans for Car Duibh Wind Farm, with the nearest proposed turbine located approximately 6km North West of Inveraray and 4.5km to the east of Dalavich in Argyll and Bute.
On Tuesday 19 July, members of the An Càrr Dubh project team attended the Inveraray Highland Games. As a first-time sponsor of these Games it great to see them well attended by local people as well as by many from all around the world.
The day got off to a great start with the Parade from Church Square to the Games Field at Inveraray Castle. Throughout the day visitors were treated to a range of traditional events and competitions, running, hammer throwing, highland dancing and piping as well as the opportunity to watch the unique cycling race.
We aimed to raise awareness of the project through our sponsorship banners on the day and it was great to be able to attend.
