Scottish & Southern Energy Gets OK For Drumderg Wind Farm  

Edited Press Release
LONDON -(Dow Jones)- Scottish and Southern Energy said Tuesday that it has been granted planning permission to develop a 32MW (megawatt) wind farm at Drumderg, five miles from Alyth, in Perthshire.
The decision follows a public inquiry into the development, which was concluded in June. The wind farm will have 16 turbines and construction work is expected to begin later this year, with the wind farm scheduled to be commissioned in 2008.
Its development will require the investment of around GBP30 million, SSE said.
The inquiry reporter made an award of expenses to SSE against Perth and Kinross Council. When the expenses are awarded, SSE will invest the amount in energy- and environment-related projects for communities in the Perth and Kinross Council area.
When Drumderg is commissioned, SSE will have 200MW of installed wind farm capacity. This includes the 6MW extension to the Tangy wind farm which is currently under construction.
In addition to Drumderg, SSE is seeking to secure consent during 2006/07 to develop another six wind farms in Scotland, with a total installed capacity of 330MW.
