Cornwall wind farm gets green light

Cornwall County Council has reached agreement with wind and bio-power developer Renewable Energy Generation (REG) for its wind farm project in Denzell Downs.

REG now expects planning permission to be granted within the next few weeks for its five turbine wind farm.

REG chief executive officer Andrew Whalley said it was “particularly pleasing to secure consent at local authority level, without recourse to the additional expense and delay of the appeal system.”

He added that the wind farm will make a “considerable contribution” to the local community through upfront and annual payments.

  • "Considerable contribution" except when it's a cold, windless winter day when we need electricity. Fortunately all those coal and gas power stations will always be running, just in case.
