Scottish Power buys Northern Ireland wind farm

Scottish Power has bought Wolf Bog wind farm in Northern Ireland from Renewable Energy Systems for over £10M, making it the biggest on shore wind generator in the province.
The five turbine, 10MW project in County Antrim will generate enough energy for over 5,000 homes and offset 22,000t of CO2, equivalent to taking over 7,000 cars off the roads, Scottish Power claims.The Wolf Bog wind farm becomes operational in spring 2008. Scottish Power's total UK wind capacity now totals 355MW - enough to power 200,000 homes and displace 800,000t of CO2 every year, it says.In Northern Ireland total capacity, including Wolf Bog, will be 37MW.
