New bid for Welsh wind farm

Renewable Energy Holdings has resubmitted an application for its proposed 27-turbine Mynydd y Gwynt wind farm in Wales.

The UK Planning Inspectorate has up to 28 days to decide if the application meets the standards required to be formally accepted for examination.

The developer had originally filed its application to develop Mynydd y Gwynt at the end of April, but withdrew its plans the following month, saying it wanted to make minor changes to the documents.

The new application for an order granting development consent for Mynydd y Gwynt, east of Aberystwyth in Powys, mid-Wales, is for 27 turbines of 3-3.3MW each, producing an overall capacity of 81-89.1MW.

In June, Renewable Energy Holdings, which has yet to generate any revenues, said its losses had significantly narrowed in 2013, following big writedown costs a year earlier.
