Gigha Wind Farm Battery Project
The 1.68 MWh energy storage system, will enable Gigha's island community to generate electricity from a fourth 330 kW turbine without applying a constraint on the voltage. Currently the Enercon-made turbine is limited to 225 kW.
Gigha's three original Vestas V27 turbines, with a combined capacity of 675 kW, comprise one of Scotland's first community wind farms. The island is connected to the mainland via an 11 kV cable, one of the longest overhead lines in Scotland.
