Wind farm impact study
A NEW study will work out the potential impact of onshore wind farms on the Welsh economy.
The study will be carried out by independent consultants Regeneris Consulting and has been commissioned by onshore wind developers and trade group RenewableUK Cymru, with support from the Welsh Government.
The results are expected in early 2013.
Dr David Clubb, director of RenewableUK Cymru, said: "Wales has the potential to benefit significantly from onshore wind energy with hundreds of jobs at every level, from apprentices to skilled engineers, and millions of pounds of investment flowing in to some of the areas of the country which need to be revitalised the most. The aim is to quantify what those unprecedented opportunities are and how we can maximise them for the benefit of our local communities."
