It is with great sadness that the Board advise of the death of Ross Balharry. Ross was a Director of the Co-op from day 1 and part of the team that successfully attracted over £700k of investors, which given Boyndie was the first Wind Farm Co-op in Scotland was a remarkable achievement. Ross’s positive contribution to the board continued right up until his death. When he brought matters up, or commented on topics being discussed, he was always worth listening to. He will be greatly missed by the Board.

Boyndie Wind Farm Co-op purchased a stake in former World War II airfield from owners Falck Renewables Wind Limited in 2006 after raising £750.000! In February 2010 the members of the co-op were given the opportunity to purchase a further stake in the additional turbine which is now constructed and fully operational.
Located on he north coast of Aberdeenshire between Portsoy and Banff. The wind farm has 8 turbines and when it’s operating fully it generates 16.30 MW of electricity. That is enough clean, green energy to supply around 9,100 homes – roughly equal to all the homes in Banff, Whitehills, Portsoy and all the nearby rural areas.
To generate clean, green electricity and help reduce reliance on existing less environmentally-friendly energy resources.
