RamseyPower Project

The project, by RSPB Cymru, will provide an innovative and "green" alternative energy supply to the buildings on Ramsey Island. This will be achieved through: • the installation of a fully automatic battery inverter system supplied with electrical power by solar panels, wind turbine and new generator to power the farmhouse (including visitor shop) and other farm buildings • the installation of a separate automatic battery inverter system supplied with electrical power by solar panels and a new generator to power the volunteers accommodation The renewable energy installations will allow year round occupancy for island staff and remove the need to rely on a single, often problematic, power source (diesel generator). It will also offer a far greener option for meeting heat and power needs and reduce the risks involved in transporting large quantities of diesel and heating oil to the island. The project will also increase awareness of renewable energy sources in the local community by using partnerships to promote this development. The RSPB will provide educational and informative talks to all who visit the island. Information about the project will be included on posters, leaflets and other promotional literature.

Project Total Cost: £38,697.00

Grant Awarded: £18,998.56
