Planning permission granted for Rhondda wind farm  

Credit:  Insider Media | 14 Jul 2015 | www.insidermedia.com ~~

Renewable Energy Generation (REG) has been granted planning permission for its 9 megawatt (MW) Abergorki Wind Farm in Rhondda Cynon Taf.

It follows the recent approval for its 8MW Mynydd Brombil Wind Farm in Neath Port Talbot and brings its number of wind projects with planning approval to eight, totalling about 60MW.

The latest project comprises three wind turbines with tip heights of up to 146.5 metres and an expected aggregate installed capacity of up to 9MW.

REG aims to grow its existing 111MW of operational UK renewable energy projects across wind, bio-power and solar to 300MW within three years.

Andrew Whalley, REG chief executive, said: “Abergorki will be a significant addition to our portfolio as it is extremely well placed to harness the excellent wind resource in this part of South Wales.

“It is also gratifying to achieve a resolution to grant consent at local authority level, demonstrating that well-sited wind farms can offer benefits to local communities and attract strong local support.

“Our pipeline of consented renewable energy projects at various stages of procurement and construction now stands at 150MW. Once commissioned, these projects will increase REG’s total generating capacity to over 250MW.”
