Plan to site three wind turbines near Undy  

Credit:  South Wales Argus | www.southwalesargus.co.uk 8 September 2012 ~~

A renewable energy company is displaying its plans for three wind turbines on land between Newport and Caldicot.

The first project, called Longlands Lane, proposes one turbine located to the north west of Redwick.

The second project, Great House Farm, proposes two turbines to the south east of Undy.

Each site will use turbines, which are a maximum of 100m in height to the tip of the blade and will be capable of generating at least 1.5 megawatts of electricity that will be fed into the local electricity network.

It is suggested that this is enough energy to power almost 800 homes every year.

The energy company, RES, is consulting with local communities prior to submitting planning applications. RES Project Manager, Phil Grant said: “We are looking forward to discussing our proposals for what we consider to be two very good sites and learning the views of local residents and other interested parties.

“Small-scale schemes like Longlands Lane and Great House Farm are important because they would generate local electricity for use on the local network.

“They will also make a valuable contribution to meeting Wales’ ambitions to increase renewable energy generation and decrease dependence on expensive fossil fuel imports.”

The exhibitions will take place over three consecutive days, from 1pm to 7pm, at the following venues:September 12 – Undy Church & Community Hall, Church Road. September 13 – Rogiet Community Room Rogiet School, Station Road.September 14 – Redwick Village Hall, Church Row.

Members of the RES project team will be on hand to discuss the proposals and answer questions. Visitors will also have the opportunity to register their views regarding the projects and to make suggestions about the form of community benefit that the projects could offer.
