Tangy is located approximately 9km northwest of Campbeltown on the west coast of Scotland's Kintyre Peninsula.

The original wind farm at Tangy, comprising 15 turbines has been in operation since 2003. Tangy II became operational in 2007, adding a further 7 machines bringing the site total to 22 turbines.

Tangy is 100% owned and operated by SSE Renewables.

SSE Renewables is seeking to 're-power' the Tangy wind farm.  You can find out more about the proposals by clicking here.

A Section 42 Planning Application including Environmental Impact Assessment was submitted to Argyll and Bute Council requesting the 6-year extension to the operational period. The planning consent for this was granted, the operational wind farm will continue to generate up to 2027.

Tangy Community Fund

Through our Tangy wind farm we make around £24,000 per year available for community and charitable projects. Over its lifetime we expect to invest £160,000 in local projects.
