This site contains information about Wrexham Power Limited’s Development Consent Order for the Wrexham Energy Centre.


Wrexham Power Limited (WPL) has now been granted a Development Consent Order (DCO) for the Wrexham Energy Centre, a new gas fired power station located at the Wrexham Industrial Estate. The WEC received its DCO after a thorough three-year process involving public consultation and examination by the Planning Inspectorate on behalf of the Government.

The WEC represents an investment of £300m and will:

  • Provide 30 highly skilled permanent local jobs
  • Create up to 515 construction jobs over three years
  • Provide an opportunity to increase the resilience of the power supply to the Wrexham Industrial Estate
  • Reduce the area's reliance on imported energy as well as improving its energy security.
