Plans to build a giant new wind farm in North Wales has been granted permission by the UK Government.

The 32-turbine Clocaenog Forest facility will have an installed capacity of up to 96MW, equivalent to powering more than 40,000 homes.

Developer RWE also expects the £100 million project to support nearly 240 jobs and bring benefits worth £40 million for Wales.

Martin Cole, Clocaenog Project Developer said: “This is a tremendous project, which can deliver significant benefits for the local communities, businesses and the environment and is an important contributor to the UK energy mix and energy security.”
