Before SSE start any new project, specialists survey the area’s species and habitats to ensure turbines, roads and power lines avoid sensitive areas.

Once built, our experts actively oversee the natural heritage at our sites to ensure the lasting legacy is always a positive one for wildlife. SSE has been involved in managing the habitats of a range of different species from salmon to ducks to eagles but the goal is always the same – to ensure that SSE balances out our customers’ need for power with the needs of the local flora and fauna.
