Scottish and Southern Energy - aspiration to create greener energy!
This week Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) are beginning to put up their first turbines at their Gordonbush wind farm in Sutherland. The site will be home to 35 wind turbines which will generate around 70MW of renewable electricity. SSE aim to have completed the construction of Gordonbush wind farm, which will cost over £100m to construct by mid 2012. This is all part of their aspiration to create greener energy for a more sustainable future.
SSE has responsibly taken local communities into consideration, keeping them updated with each phase of construction and dealing with any queries they may have. As a result the first two weeks of deliveries to the construction site seem to have gone smoothly and disruption to the communities has been kept to a minimum.
SSE has 3 major wind farms which are currently under construction. There is Clyde wind farm based in South Lanarkshire which will produce 350MW of electricity and Griffin in Perthshire, which will produce 156MW of electricity.
SSE like most major energy companies has intentions to reduce their carbon emissions. They are currently on their way cutting their carbon dioxide output which is produced from their power stations and aim to have cut down by 50% by 2020.
Today, SSE have made public, that they have made £300m on the European bond market even though the European capital markets are constantly fluctuating with little stability. With this money they want to continue to help support more energy projects.
