The project was originally granted planning permission and was intended to run until 2019, but a new application has been submitted to allow the wind farm to run for many more years, potentially until 2027 as it continues to perform well, and contribute to the local economy and community projects.
The wind farm is sited on a plateau just to the north of a Site of Special Scientific Interest between Rhayader and Llangurig, Powys. This was a major factor in the environmental assessment of the project and care was taken in planning the wind farm to avoid areas of ecological interest and to minimise its effect on the local environment.
The current planning consent for Bryn Titli Wind Farm ends in 2019. The wind farm has proven to be in an excellent location for renewable energy generation and continues to operate well. It is, therefore, proposed to extend the operational life of the existing Bryn Titli Wind Farm until 31 March 2027 with a further 12 months to allow decommissioning and restoration of the site until 29 June 2028.
