Mynydd Portref Wind Farm


Renewable Energy Generation Limited ("REG") (AIM: WIND), the renewable energy group, today announces that Rhondda Cynon Taf Council has resolved to grant planning permission for the company's Mynydd Portref Wind Farm.

The project comprises six wind turbines with an expected installed capacity of 12MW. Formal planning permission is expected to follow shortly and subject to the expiry of the six week legal challenge period, the project is expected to enter construction in late 2015.

The wind farm is anticipated to generate around 30GWh per year, making it one of REG's most productive sites.

Andrew Whalley, REG Chief Executive Officer, said: "Mynydd Portref will be a very significant addition to our portfolio as it is extremely well placed to harness the excellent wind resource in this part of South Wales.

"It is also gratifying to achieve a resolution to grant consent at local authority level, demonstrating that well-sited wind farms can offer benefits to local communities and attract strong local support."
