Two wind farms into planning

Novera Energy plc, a leading independent UK renewable energy company, is pleased to announce it has submitted planning applications for two wind farms in Northumberland.

The Wingates Wind Farm application made to Alnwick District Council is for six turbines with an anticipated capacity of 12-15MW to be located approximately six kilometres south of Longframlington.

The Todd Hill Wind Farm application made to Castle Morpeth District Council is for four turbines with an anticipated capacity of 8-10MW to be located at a site approximately six kilometres northwest of Morpeth.

Novera already has a significant wind portfolio which includes the 15MW Mynydd Clogau Wind Farm in mid-Wales which has been in production since January 2006, the 30MW Lissett Airfield Wind Farm which is under construction and two consented sites.  

Novera now has a total of six sites in planning and expects to submit two further applications for wind developments before the year end.
