Renewable Energy Generation (REG) has been granted planning permission for its 6MW wind farm at South Sharpley in County Durham.
Renewable energy firm REG can now install three 2MW wind turbines with a tip height of up to 100m on the site.
REG anticipates commissioning the wind farm in early 2013.
“This is the fourth consented project we have achieved in the last seven months, demonstrating the value of our in-house development team,” said REG chief executive officer Andrew Whalley.
“We now have 24MW of consented wind capacity awaiting construction, building on the 41.15MW already operational.”
