Status: Operational

Scout Moor Wind Farm was promoted by Peel and has been operational from 2008.  

Scout Moor is a 26-turbine onshore wind farm on moorland in the South Pennines, between the village of Edenfield in Lancashire and the town of Rochdale in Greater Manchester.

After four years of successful operation and management, Peel sold its remaining interest in Scout Moor to MEAG in October 2012.

Each of the Nordex N80 turbines has the capacity to generate 2.5MW of electricity, which means that the wind farm has an installed capacity of 65MW. 

The wind farm also operates a Habitat Enhancement Fund (HEF). The principal aims are to target specific habitats, species and management tasks to deliver optimum conditions for upland biodiversity within the Plan area. The HEF is administered on behalf of MEAG by Atmos Consulting.

Peel is currently promoting an expansion to the Scout Moor Wind Farm, more information can be found here.
