The People's Power Station

The People's Power Station (PPS) is a three-year project to set up Community Energy Supply Companies (ESCOs) and install community renewable energy technologies in up to four communities within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. To achieve this outcome the West Wales Eco Centre will work with specific community groups to encourage and facilitate their transition towards more sustainable futures, ensuring that they are better prepared for the impacts that climate change and future energy supply issues will present to them. The People's Power Station's practical and inclusive approach will result in up to four viable and appropriate scale renewable energy installations that will provide direct benefit to the communities that take part. Although unique to the specific demands of each participating community, to deliver the outcome the project will follow a common theme and will provide: • Feasibility studies to include a study of the most appropriate renewable energy measures and grant assistance. • Help to communities so that they can set up their own Energy Supply Companies (ESCOs) • Assistance and advice on energy efficiency to reduce energy demand • Community events to raise awareness and understanding • Benchmarking by calculating the ecological footprints of the communities involved and monitoring new and existing renewable installations. • Exchange of information within and between communities including setting up blogs for discussion on energy saving techniques
