Project History

Howpark Wind Farm is Eurowind Energy’s first UK (soon to be) operational asset. The 16-Megawatt (MW) project consists of eight Vestas V80 wind turbines; the turbines have a hub height of 60 m and a tip height of 100 m. Energisation expected in January 2024.

Eurowind Energy is seeking consent from the Scottish Borders Council for a solar photovoltaic generation station at the site of our wind farm to maximise the existing wind farm grid connection. This is in line with our ambition to create ‘hybrid parks’ at our sites.

Further information on our Howpark Solar Farm is presented below on this webpage. Further information on our Howpark Wind Farm project can be found here.


Introducing a new solar project

A new solar photovoltaic project at Howpark is under development. We are maximising our 16-Megawatt (MW) wind farm grid connection by connecting a new solar project to the same connection. By installing solar at Howpark, we will better ensure that green electricity is always being produced – when the wind is not blowing, the solar project generates green electricity for the National Grid, and vice versa.

The project is located in the Scottish Borders, Berwickshire, approximately 2 km to the northeast of Grantshouse, as shown on the map.

The solar farm will have an installed capacity of up to 15 MW (Direct Current).
