Cwm Arian Community Energy Phase I

This project will undertake a feasibility study to outline the options for the development of community owned Electrical Power Sites in the area covered by Cwm Arian Community Forum - Hermon, Y Glog, Llanfyrnach and Glandwr. As part of the project we will wish to conduct an energy audit and also investigate alternative forms of renewable energy such as micro hydro, solar, wind and biomass which have been discussed and investigated at our community forum meetings. A redundant Hydro Electrical Power unit exists at Pontygafel Farm with three other Micro Hydro Electric Sites identified by a voluntary hydro engineer who is a member of the community forum. Also the transformer for the ten wind turbines at Blaenwaun Wind farm (Owned by a Scandinavian energy corporation) is located in the Village of Llanfyrnach and could form part of a community wind turbine development. The feasibility study will aim to look at all the community energy options available within the area to reflect an environmentally integrated development strategy. The intended outcome is the production of renewable energy and to ensure viability with surpluses ploughed back into community regeneration projects. The project will provide a blueprint for other communities within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park to develop similar initiatives.
