The Benbrack onshore wind farm project, acquired by Red Rock Power in February 2021, is a late-stage development located in Dumfries & Galloway, Southwest Scotland.

The wind farm site sits just south of the East Ayrshire border, approximately 6 km north of Carsphairn and east of the A713. *The application boundary does not represent the actual footprint of the wind farm, rather the area of land to which the planning permission and related scoping studies apply to. The actual size of the wind farm will be considerably smaller.

The wind farm was first proposed in 2012 and secured planning consent in 2017 which has since been varied to further optimise the project. It has a potential generating capacity of around 72 MW and consent for up to 18 turbines however the detailed design including height, number and location of wind turbines is yet to be announced.

A detailed construction timeline is also to be confirmed, however initial site works are expected to commence in July 2022. More information will be shared as soon as possible.
