RES has submitted a planning application for the 13 turbine Mynydd Maen Wind Farm to Planning and Environment Decisions Wales (PEDW). PEDW now have a period of time to confirm if the application is valid. Following formal confirmation of the application being validated, a five week representation period starts. During this period, relevant consultation and publicity will be carried out by PEDW. We will also update this website at this time with links to the final planning application and further information on how to make comments on the application.

It is predicted that the project will have the potential to deliver approximately £26.3 million into the Welsh economy through the construction phase, of which it is predicted £3.6 million would be realised in the local area. Should the project proceed, RES will actively work with the supply chain in order to understand the growing skills and capabilities available and maximise inward investment wherever possible.

Onshore wind, alongside other renewable technologies is the cheapest form of new electricity generation. If consented, Mynydd Maen Wind Farm will have an installed capacity of approximately 55MW and be capable of providing low cost, clean electricity for around 55,000 homes making an important contribution to the decarbonisation of Wales’ energy system by 2035 Wind energy is a free and inexhaustible resource which has an important role to play as part of a balanced energy mix. It also increases energy security by reducing our reliance on imports and builds our resilience to sudden fossil fuel price fluctuations or the uncertainty of global markets.
