Banks Renewables, has been featured in the local Scottish Borders press this week, after we released feedback from the firm’s latest series of exhibitions for its proposed Birneyknowe Wind Farm.
The Hawick News and Border Telegraph, both ran stories which told of the interest from Borderers in finding out more about the local benefits of the wind farm, such as job creation schemes and start up grants, which were highlighted at a recent series of exhibitions held by the firm.
The £250,000 annual revenue which could be made available for the local community, was headline news for the local Hawick paper, as well as highlighting praise for Banks Renewables commitment to the local area, from an influential business leader in the area.
Exhibitions were held in June over three days and were well attended by over 100 people.
The coverage was achieved as part of an ongoing PR campaign from the Holyrood Partnership and the full story can be found in the original press release.
