Dec 2, 2014 - Isle of Man-registered firm Renewable Energy Holdings Plc (LON:REH) said yesterday that its up to 89.1-MW Mynydd y Gwynt wind project in Wales has moved into the six month examination phase.
The company’s proposal will be reviewed by the Planning Inspectorate. After the end of the six-month period, the Planning Examiner will have three months to make a recommendation to the UK government. The Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Eric Pickles, will make a final decision on the scheme after an additional three months.
The Mynydd y Gwynt wind park will consist of 27 turbines with capacities of between 3 MW and 3.3 MW each. The facility will be located within Powys County Council’s administrative area. This summer, REH filed an amended application with the Planning Inspectorate after it decided to make minor changes on the proposal. Previously, the scheme was supposed to include 27 turbines with a combined capacity of 81 MW.
