Middle Hill Renewables Ltd was formed in June 2011. It is a company owned by Air Farmers Ltd. Air Farmers Ltd has been in existence since 2008. Companies House lists their business as the "Production of electricity".

The shareholders in the company(s) are investors based in London with no track record of green energy at all other than a minor shareholder whose LinkedIn profile lists (amongst many others) "Renewables" as one of his areas of expertise.

Middle Hill Renewables is a company set up, it would appear, specifically with this development in mind. This would appear to be confirmed by Air Farmers forming Middleton Burn Ltd - another company proposing an equally inappropriate wind farm development further north.

The Managing Director of both Air Farmers & Middle Hill Renewables is Jens Rasmussen, a Danish National based in London. It's interesting that the largest developer of windfarms in Denmark has announced that because of public backlash, it would not be developing any further onshore windfarms, but would be looking at offshore developments (read more here).

Other shareholders are Guy Walker, Marcia Rodrigues Da Silva, Michael Ingemann and Jonathan Waxman.

Why should it matter? Well as outlined in the Green or Greed page, Middle Hill Renewables Ltd. has offered potential compensation packages to the individuals and properties affected by the proposed development including a "Community fund" of £54,000 per year - for the anticipated 25 year life of the development.
