June 21 (Renewables Now) - Swedish utility Vattenfall AB today said it is considering a renewable energy project at Mynydd Lluest y Graig in north Powys, Wales that could include up to 14 turbines and other renewable technologies such as solar and storage options.
The company shelved previous plans for the site in 2013 after regulatory changes in the UK.
The new plans are at an early stage, with the developer looking to start consultation on them in the autumn.
Currently, 105 MW of capacity from wind is envisaged, which would generate enough electricity a year to power 77,500 local homes, the company calculates.
According to an indicative timetable, the site could be operational in the early 2030s.
Vattenfall noted the Welsh government seeks to generate 70% of its electricity consumption from renewables by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050.
