Whitesands Bay Initiative
This project provided an awareness and understanding of sustainability via the installation of carbon free technology to provide heating and electricity to a community building. This was achieved by installing solar water heating, electricity generating photovoltaic cells, a small electricity generating wind turbine and via the recovery and distribution of heat produced by freezers in a cold storage room. The solar and photovoltaic panels and the wind turbine will be highly visible examples of sustainable technology. Therefore the project will promote the use of these technologies and will be a model of sustainability within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The scheme will raise awareness of the potential of sustainable technologies for use within our buildings to all local and visiting communities - particularly the young who will use this facility on a regular basis.
