The U.K.'s largest community-owned wind farm has completed construction.

The Beinn Ghrideag wind farm, which will be powered by three 3 MW Enercon wind turbines, is located in Scotland's Outer Hebridean Islands.

According to consultancy SgurrEnergy, which served as the project's technical advisor, energy production is expected to begin this summer.

Developed by Point and Sandwick Power, the wind farm will provide enough energy to power 6,000 homes and is expected to generate more than 36 million British pounds in economic benefits for the community over 25 years.

SgurrEnergy will undertake ongoing operational management support for five years to optimize the project's energy production and ensure the best possible return for the community.
