Residents in Scotland could soon be using cheap electricity derived from green sources after plans for a wind farm were submitted.
The BBC reported that Dumfries and Galloway Council received an application for a 18-turbine wind farm and planning officials have recommended that the project goes ahead.
Gamesa Energy UK is behind the plans and intends to build a control building with 40 solar panels at Carscreugh Fell near Glenluce if the wind farm is granted permission.
Meanwhile, chair of energy supplier ScottishPower Renewables' parent company Iberdrola, Ignacio Galan, has commented on Scotland's renewable energy targets.
"Scotland is at the forefront of the renewable revolution," he pointed out.
"With fair charging and the correct political will it is entirely credible to see Scotland producing 100 per cent of its own electricity requirements from renewables by 2020 as well as continuing to produce power from a range of other sources."
