Wind energy from south Wales

Mynydd y Gwair – The Rotor is Lifted on the Final Wind Turbine

I would like to take the opportunity to thank the local communities along the delivery route for their patience during the wind turbine component delivery period. It has been a significant challenge to erect the turbines through the winter but the challenges have demonstrated what a perfect site Mynydd y Gwair is for a wind farm!

12 turbines are now fully commissioned and generating with the next one due any day now!

Our next major milestone will be to get all 16 turbines up and generating renewable energy to the grid. At which point our much awaited Community Benefit Fund, worth in the region of £6M also becomes available. This is being administered independently from innogy by SCVS and we are excited to see the impact it will have locally.

During the next month or so we will reinstate the two splitter islands on the Penllegaer roundabout  and we will undertake final top-soiling and seeding around the turbines.
