Wind Turbines

A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind into mechanical energy. If the mechanical energy is used to produce electricity, the device may be called a wind generator or wind charger. If the mechanical energy is used to drive machinery, such as for grinding grain or pumping water, the device is called a windmill or wind pump. Developed for over a millennium, today's wind turbines are manufactured in a range of vertical and horizontal axis types. The smallest turbines are used for applications such as battery charging or auxiliary power on sailing boats; while large grid-connected arrays of turbines are becoming an increasingly large source of commercial electric power.

Longpark Wind Turbine # 9001

The 19-turbine 38 MW capacity, proposal by developer Wind Prospect was refused consent by Scottish Borders Council when first proposed. The company appealed to the executive and obtained the all-clear for work to start on Longpark wind farm. Developers said the project, about three miles north of Galashiels, would provide enough power to supply about 27,000 homes once it was in operation.
