Plans for new hillside wind farm  

An English company has submitted plans to build a windfarm in Mid Wales.

The scheme by RES UK & Ireland Ltd (RES) to build 23 turbines at Garreg Lwyd Hill, between Felindre and Llanbadarn Fynydd in Radnorshire, has been submitted to Powys Council.

A decision is expected this year and if permission is granted, building could start in 2010.

The turbines would have a capacity of 2MW, with 80m towers and 93m diameter rotors.

RES said they would generate around 120GWh of pollution-free electricity a year, equivalent to the annual electrical demand of over 25,700 homes.

As part of the planning application, an environmental statement has been prepared on any likely effects of the turbines during construction and their 25-year life.

RES claims the wind farm would pose no significant risk to bird populations or other wildlife.
