Commissioned in 2013, the farm comprises nine Gamesa G58/850 turbines each producing 850 kW of power, giving a total generation capacity of 7.65 MW. The blade diameter is 58m (190 feet). Aberdeenshire Council refused permission for construction, but this was overturned on appeal by the Scottish Executive. St. John's Hill is owed and operated by Scottish & Southern Energy (SSE) Plc, headquartered in Perth.
