Novera is pleased to announce it has submitted a planning application for a
proposed wind farm to be known as A'Chruach Wind Farm, located approximately 5km
west north-west of Minard and 10km north north-east of Lochgilphead in Argyll
and Bute.

The application is for 20 wind turbines with an expected capacity of 40-48MW. .

This is in addition to the planning applications for the proposed wind farms at
Fleeter Wood (10MW) and Glenkerie (22-27MW) submitted earlier this week. The
Company now has four sites in planning with a combined potential capacity of
78-91MW. This exceeds the Novera's target of submitting 70MW into planning
during 2007 and keeps the Company on track to have 250MW in production by 2011.
