Marchmont Farms Ltd at Greenlaw has applied for planning permission to put up a 41.8m wind turbine at Woodhead Farm.

It says the 100kW turbine will reduce energy costs, particularly at the grain drying and handling plant at Woodhead Farm which requires a considerable amount of energy.

The applicant also says electricity produced that is not required by the farm will be fed into the National Grid.
