Renewable Energy - on your doorstep
The project will take renewable energy out to the communities within Pembrokeshire. The West Wales Eco Centre has recently completed the construction of a renewable energy trailer which demonstrates PV (photovoltaic) and wind as a means of generating electricity, solar water heating and biomass heating using a wood pellet stove. All of this equipment, including monitoring and display information is presented in a way to show the general public the practical options that they could use in their homes and premises (for community halls, SMEs etc.). The trailer is also fitted with AV and audio equipment to allow it to be used at e.g. local shows, school fetes etc. as the PA system. Everything runs from renewable energy.Over a twelve-month period it is planned to take this trailer to at least one venue/meeting per week. The venues are going to be schools, community groups and general public events.
