Wind energy firm enjoy windfall of press coverage, with help from Scottish PR experts
As the January gales take their toll on Scotland – forcing bridge closures and lining the pockets of roofers up and down the nation – it seemed appropriate to review the recent media successes of our wind energy client.
As one of our most active and long-standing clients, Banks Renewables enjoyes a healthy media profile at the many sites across Scotland where it hopes to create wind farms.
So here is a quick blast through the highlights of the recent coverage – most notably the headlines that matter most to Banks Renewables, in the local newspapers close to its proposed sites.
News of wind farm rejection not taken lightly by Banks Renewables
With the support of our expert PR team, we positioned this to the local press, who ran the story hinting at a planned appeal, while reporting the widely-held local opinion that the opportunity could be missed for a vital £33 million “shot in the arm” for the local economy.
Meanwhile, the story made big news online too, with many regional news sources showcasing the rejection response, including the hugely popular Daily Record website which also reported on Banks Renewables’ response to the council decision, ensuring vast exposure for our client.
Banks sporting sponsorship gets its skates on
Meanwhile, Banks Renewables also recognised a great cause by sponsoring the Dumfries and Galloway Life’s ‘Team-of-the-year’ award, which showcases talent near to its Knockendurrick project.
The winners were the phenomenally successful Solway Skaters – who’s achievements speak volumes about both the team coach Phil Carter and the drive and talent of the young skaters.
Holyrood Partnership – quick to make the most of this positive PR – delivered the goods again, ensuring that the story received great exposure in the Dumfries and Galloway region.
