                  Planning Application for Glenkerie Wind Farm


Novera is pleased to announce it has submitted a planning application for a
proposed wind farm to be known as Glenkerie Wind Farm, located 5km north west of
Tweedsmuir and 12km south east of Biggar, in the Scottish Borders region.

The application is for 11 wind turbines with an expected capacity of 22-27MW.

This is in addition to the planning application for the proposed 10MW Fleeter
Wood Wind Farm announced on 17 December. Novera expects to submit a third
application shortly, to give a total of four sites in planning with a combined
potential of 78-91MW of capacity by end 2007. This will keep us on track to have
250MW of onshore wind capacity in production by 2011.
