Clean energy firm to develop Wales wind farm

Clean energy firm to develop Wales wind farm
Energy investor Renewable Energy Holdings has agreed to purchase a wind farm project in Wales.

The company said it would pay £16 million for the project to construct a 69 megawatt wind farm at the site of a rally racing course.

A total of 23 wind turbines are to be installed in the Cambrian Mountains, each of which will have a rated capacity of three megawatts.

The company claims that a wind study has indicated that the farm will have a net capacity factor of 36 per cent, above the UK average of between 28 per cent and 36 per cent.

It will produce between 181 gigawatt hours (GWh) and 220 GWh, or 0.26 per cent of the 75 terawatt hours the UK consumes annually, according to Greenbang.

Gordon Brown has committed the UK to generating 15 per cent of electricity from renewable sources by 2020 and declared that instead of backing away from the target as a result of financial downturn, taking steps to meet it could help the UK economy.
