Renewable Energy Generation (REG), the AIM quoted UK focused multi-divisional renewables company, announced Friday that planning permission has been granted for the Company's 8MW Mynydd Brombil Wind Farm in Neath Port Talbot.  This project is in addition to REG's five consented UK onshore wind farm sites which have a combined capacity of 38MW and are due to be delivered over the coming 18 months.  REG's strategy is to increase its existing 111MW of operational UK renewable energy projects across wind, bio-power and solar to 300MW within three years.

The project comprises four wind turbines with an expected installed capacity of 8MW.  The Planning Inspectorate's grant of planning permission, following a public inquiry held during May 2015, is subject to the usual six week legal challenge period.  The Company is currently in discussions with the Department of Energy and Climate Change on the Project's eligibility for the proposed revision to grace periods under the Renewable Obligation regime.

Andrew Whalley, REG Chief Executive Officer, said: 'Mynydd Brombil is an excellent addition to the Company's growing portfolio of 111MW wind, solar and biopower assets.  We now have a pipeline of 140MW of consented renewable energy projects at various stages of procurement and construction which, once commissioned, will increase REG's total generating capacity to over 250MW.  With multiple projects at various stages of development, I look forward to providing further updates on our progress as we look to build a leading independent renewable energy provider in the UK.'
