DECC gives green light for 57MW wind farm in Cheshire

A new 19-turbine, 57MW wind farm has been given consent by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).

The wind farm, situated near Frodsham, Cheshire, will be developed by Peel Energy.

It is estimated to create 50 construction jobs and will reportedly reduce carbon-dioxide emissions by around 50,000 tonnes per year.
