Airvolution wins planning nod for 6-MW wind farm in England
Oct 29, 2013 - UK small wind farm developer Airvolution Energy Ltd said on Sunday it had received planning permission for its 6-MW Potato Pot wind park in west Cumbria, northwestern England.
The company won the planning consent for the three-turbine project after in April 2012 the Allerdale Borough Council failed to make a decision within the agreed time frame of 16 weeks. In January 2013, the developer appealed the non-determination.
Airvolution intends to start building the wind power facility in the second half of 2014. When up and running, it will generate enough power to supply 3,800 households per year. The project will fetch GBP 450,000 (USD 726,000/EUR 527,000) to the local community during its 25-year lifespan.
Including the Potato Pot wind scheme, Airvolution now has 30 MW of approved projects, it noted.
