With a current operating portfolio of over 1600 MW, ScottishPower Renewables (SPR), part of the Iberdrola Group, is a significant contributor to Scotland and the UK's overall renewable generation capacity. Following the announcement in December of the intention to consent Black Law Extension Phase 2, SPR now has eight sites with positive planning permission with a capacity of over 500 MW. The company is well on the way to achieving the 2000 MW figure, continuing as the largest onshore windfarm developer in the UK.
Black Law Extension Phase 2 means that in the last 12 months SPR has received positive planning decisions on four onshore windfarms. Since March 2000 the company has successfully taken 25 onshore windfarms through the planning system.
