At ScottishPower Renewables, part of The Iberdrola Group, we always do our best for the environment. That’s why we’re now the largest developer and generator of onshore wind energy in the UK. We recently built the largest wind farm in Europe at Whitelee, near Glasgow. Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond liked the idea so much he officially switched on the site in May 2009.
Whitelee has the capacity to power more than 180,000 homes . We also wanted to show people how we made it all possible so we created a state-of-the-art visitor centre for them. Now we’re the proud owners of one of Scotland’s largest eco-tourist attractions. It not only boasts a modern exhibition but it also features a unique renewable energy learning hub.
If you’re interested in in more information go to Whitelee Visitor Centre.
