STEPHEN TEMLETT and South Ayrshire, received £6.36 million last year.
Both sites are operated by ScottishPower Renwables.
Dr John Constable, director of Renewable Energy Foundation, a UK charity that publishes data on the energy sector, said: “Windfarms should not be compensated at all when asked to stop generating and they certainly should not receive a large premium over and above the lost income.
“This is taking advantage of the consumer. It is a mystery to me why the regulator, Ofgem, has not been firmer about the matter.”
Across Scotland the payments reached £125 million – 15 per cent more than 2017.
Robin Rigg East and West, two off shore windfarms in the Solway Firth, were given more than £1 million to shut down.
Ewe Hill in Lockerbie received £1.1 million with Brockloch Rig 2 in Carsphairn being paid £690,000 to stop production.
