North Wales cluster of turbines approved

Google Translate

Three north Wales hill farmers are building a cluster of three wind turbines at Moel Moelogan near Llanrwst. Two of the 1.3 MW Bonus turbines are to be owned and operated by Cwmni Gwynt Teg Cyf, a co-operative set up by Geraint Davies and brothers Rheinallt and Robin Williams. The third is to be operated by German development company Energiekontor. Output from the site will be sold to the Non-Fossil Purchasing Agency under a Non-Fossil Fuel Obligation (NFFO) power purchase contract. Energiekontor's turbine is one of the first wind projects to benefit from a change in the rules allowing NFFO contracts to be transferred from their original site if projects are unable to secure planning consent. The three turbines are being installed this month and are expected to be commissioned shortly afterwards.
