Aviva Renewables

Aviva Wind Turbine, Perth, Scotland


Why locate a wind turbine here?

  • Aviva is a large consumer of electricity that would be supplied directly by the wind turbine
  • There is a good existing electricity grid connection
  • The site is easily accessible given the proximity to the M90 motorway
  • A turbine located here would make the most of Perth’s great wind resource
  • There would be limited ecological impact given the built-up nature of the site
  • The visual impact would be relatively contained given the surrounding terrain screening
