James Jones & Sons funded the acquisition of the UK’s first subsidy-free windfarm, Inverclyde Windfarm Ltd, from BayWa r.e., in tandem with London-based specialist asset manager, Gresham House Asset Management in Dec 2020.

Located in Inverclyde, south of Greenock and west of Port Glasgow, the site consists of eight wind turbines and has a total capacity of 24 MW. The clean energy produced will displace more than 18,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually, supplementing the reduction of 32,650 tonnes from our in-house biomass plants.

The windfarm is also set to generate £700,000 of funding for local voluntary and community groups, thanks to decade-long partnership agreement between Inverclyde Renewables LLP and Inverclyde Community Fund.
