In the beginning…
Muirhall Farm was acquired and restored in 2003 by our Founder and Managing Director, Chris Walker.
Our company is formed
Realising an interest in wind farm development, Chris started his own business, ‘Muirhall Energy Limited’.
First wind turbines
Having been developed by Lomond Energy, and Chris, the original 6 turbine Muirhall Windfarm became operational in 2011.
As the portfolio grew, so did the team and expertise at Muirhall Energy. Having developed a number of single turbine sites, the company began to look at larger potential wind farm developments.
Muirhall Wind Farms grow
In 2014, a 2 turbine Muirhall Extension became operational, boasting the tallest tip heights in the UK at the time, at 147m. With the commitment that community benefit monies would be kept local, a new group ‘WAT IF’ was formed.
A further 3 turbine extension
‘Muirhall South’ was constructed in 2016, completing the now 11 turbine Muirhall Windfarm. Another UK record was set, this time for the largest rotor at 130m. Provision of additional funds to WAT IF group, furthered our local commitment.
Further portfolio growth lead to new additions to our team. Our business premises were extended to include the Garden Office, affectionately known as ‘The Shed’.
Our innovative approach to solving aviation concerns at Edinburgh airport meant that the 15 turbine Tormywheel Windfarm was constructed and began generating electricity in 2017. Once again, our community benefit commitment was above industry standards and was safeguarded when the project was later sold.
With 20 team members, sites at every stage in the developmental pipeline and exciting shared- ownership opportunities to enhance our support of the communities in which we work, we thought the only thing that we had not developed was our logo! Time for a refresh…
At the heart of our business is a commitment to local people. We aim to create real opportunities for individuals, businesses, groups and projects in the communities close to our developments.
