OnPath Energy Generates Enough Wind Power for 195,000 Homes

The portfolio of wind farms owned and operated by OnPath Energy, a leading renewable energy company based in the United Kingdom, generated enough electricity in the company’s last financial year to meet the annual needs of around 195,000 homes, according to a company report released last week.

The 11 OnPath wind farms located across Scotland and northern England produced over 528,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity between April 2022 and September 2023. By generating this renewable energy, the wind farms offset carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to taking over 53,200 gasoline-powered cars off the road for a year.

“Our onshore wind farms generate considerable amounts of renewable electricity for use in our homes, schools, hospitals and businesses, and help us make a substantial contribution towards helping the UK meet its Net Zero ambitions,” said Richard Dunkley, CEO of OnPath Energy, in an interview.

The company, formerly known as Banks Renewables before rebranding after its acquisition by Brookfield Asset Management last year, has three wind farms in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. Together they generated around 330,000 MWh over the 12-month period, with the Middle Muir Wind Farm producing 92,505 MWh, Kye Muir Wind Farm generating 177,867 MWh, and Kye Muir Extension Wind Farm adding another 62,422 MWh.

Across Britain, OnPath’s wind farms delivered over £800,000 in revenues for community benefit funds, which provide financial support for local organizations and causes near the wind farm sites.

OnPath Energy, one of the top owner-operators in the UK’s onshore renewable energy industry, currently has several wind farms in various planning stages and is working to deploy more renewable power technologies at new locations. The existing management team continues to lead operations after the rebranding.
