Largest UK wind farm set for approval

May 23 – The UK government is expected Thursday to give the go-ahead for the country’s biggest onshore wind farm at Cefn Croes in Wales, the Financial Times reported.

The à‚£35m project, which will involve the construction of 39 turbines generating 58.8 MW, is considered a test of the UK government’s determination to ease the process for renewable energy developers to get planning permission, the paper says.

The Cefn Croes project was initially proposed by Enron Wind, the wind turbine unit of collapsed US energy giant Enron Corp. and will be carried out by General Electric Co, which took over Enron Wind.
