LIVE MEETING
19th Jan 2023
3pm-7pm
Woodwynd Community Centre

ONLINE EVENT
26th Jan 2023
3pm-7pm

We are looking to engage with the local community and as part of our pre-application consultation we are holding a live event on the 19th of January 2023 3pm-7pm at the Woodwynd Community Centre, and an online event at this website on the 26th of January . These will enable people to find out more about the proposal and to provide us with their views.

Comments and feedback should be made by the 17th of February 2023. Please use the form below or write to Grieg Templeton, Planning Project Manager via email: gt@ili-energy.com or by post to ILI Group, 33 Bothwell Road, Hamilton ML3 OAS.

Comments made to ILI Group are not formal representations North Ayrshire Council. If we submit a planning application there will be an opportunity to make formal representations on the application to North Ayrshire Council.
Ask us a question...

Good afternoon, I live very close to the proposed battery site. It appears from the details given that the visual impact will be low (after the initial construction). Can you tell me more about any noise from the inverter / transformer systems? With current conventional substations a background hum from the transformers can often be heard.
Craig Trott
Thank you. That answered my next question: Do the battery storage units need to be heated in cases of very low outside air temperatures, or cooled in in high temperatures and are there any noise implications with this?
Craig Trott
Will the connection to the main grid be via underground cables, or overhead lines?
Craig Trott
Can you confirm that we will also be notified via email with updates when completing the form at the bottom of your website. Will this include the planning application?

Hi, if you mention on the form that you would like to be notified then we will endevour to do so, but the best thing to do would be to keep an eye on the local paper where the application will be advertised once it has been submitted and registered.
Craig Trott
I'll submit another form requesting that. It can be very easy to miss planning applications in the local paper...
visitor3320
It can unfortunately, but that is the system for all planning applications in Scotland. The Council will notify neighbouring properties within a certain distance, so you may hear via that route. If you submit a second form I will take a note of your details.
Craig Trott
Thank you, and thanks again for the presentation and answering my questions.
visitor3320
No problem at all.

Hi I'm Greig from ILI
visitor3306
Hi Greig, the presentation mentions about storage capacity of renewables like wind and solar. How does this relate to this proposed storeage at Kilwinning. (is it proximity to Whitelee, etc?) thanks
visitor3306
thanks Greig, that did answer my question - thanks
visitor3306
another question if OK! Is this proposal "future proofed" from a capacity view or would there be a potential for extension in the future?
visitor3320
We can not rule out the possibility that additional capacity might become available in future, but we consider it likely that as the technology advances it will also get smaller meaning that a greater capacity will be possible on a smaller footprint.
visitor3306
ok, thank you
visitor3320
apologies I am having some technical difficulties with the video. It will be up and running again in a moment.
visitor3306
is there any work required at the actual sub station relating to the installation of the battery storage area?
visitor3320
Hi. I gave a verbal answer but I don't know if you heard this. Please also email or fill out the PAN questionnaire at the bottom of the page.
visitor3306
sorry, I didn't. will do and thanks for your help
visitor3320
We do not anticipate any significant works at the substation to facilitate our development. There will be an underground cable that will run from the site to the substation which is just opposite.
visitor3306
thanks

Thank you for your time
