New windfarm approved for Scotland

New windfarm approved for Scotland
Scotland's growing wind energy sector has been boosted by news that plans for a new facility in Aberdeenshire have been approved.

Commercial power company Novera Energy has announced that it was granted planning permission for its proposals to construct a five-turbine facility in Turiff.

It is expected that the Gordonstown Hill facility will have a total renewable energy capacity in the range of 10MW to 12.5MW, allowing it to provide electricity to thousands of homes in the local community.

Newenergyfocus.com reports that David Fitzsimmons, chief executive of Novera, explained that the green energy company will now focus its attentions on securing a connection to the grid for its new facility and financing the scheme.

He is quoted by the website as saying: "When completed, the windfarm will provide clean energy for up to 7,000 homes in Aberdeenshire."

Novera, which operates 57 UK sites with a total installed capacity of 118MW, aims to generate 250MW from wind power alone by 2011.

It also specialises in hydro-power and landfill gas power generation facilities.
