11 companies will be given licences.
Local news website The Nation reported that Thailand's Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) will soon issue wind farm licences to 11 companies after the Agricultural Land Reform Office (ALRO) this week ruled that 17 wind farm projects located on Sor Por Kor government land in the Northeast were legal, would benefit local farmers and could continue as planned.
ERC member Weerapol Jirapraditkul said on Thursday the ERC was waiting for a confirmation letter from the ALRO about the projects' legal status before proceeding with issuing the licences.
He said the agency had halted issuing the licences pending clarity from the ALRO.
