Peel Energy gets UK govt approval for 57-MW wind farm
Oct 19, 2012 - UK low-carbon project developer and operator Peel Energy has today been granted consent by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) for the development of a 57-MW wind farm near Frodsham, in Cheshire, northwestern England.
The wind farm will consist of 19 turbines and will be able to generate enough electricity to power 25,000 homes, DECC said in a statement. It will also reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to about 50,000 tonnes per year. The project is accompanied by a community trust fund and is expected to create 50 jobs during construction.
Peel Energy is part of real estate, transport and infrastructure investment company Peel Group. It says it has over 3 GW of assets in operation or development including wind, tidal, biomass and multi-fuel power stations with carbon capture and storage.
