Our Current Projects

Mynydd y Gaer Wind

Mynydd y Gaer Wind is a key part of the Bridgend Energy Hub that will supply the power needs of up to 45,000 homes.

Parc Dyffryn

A unique renewable energy project, where solar power and nature will intertwine to help power a greener future for us all.

Ty'n y Waun Solar

Ty'n y Waun Solar is an innovative scheme that will bring a wide-range of benefits to Heol-y-Cyw and the surrounding area.

Manmoel Wind

An innovative wind scheme that will bring a wide range of benefits to the local Tredegar/Ebbw Vale area. The scheme will have a capacity of 25MW (or power for 20,000 homes), reducing carbon emissions by around 1.4 million tonnes over the life of the project.

Cardiff Airport

The new solar farm will provide the airport with electricity through the use of a private wire. It is estimated that the farm will provide a carbon reduction of approximately 20,508 tonnes over the next 25 years – a saving of roughly 860 tonnes per year.

Llwyncelyn Wind

A local community energy scheme in Rhondda Cynon Taf. In 2017, we were granted planning permission for two wind turbines to be installed at Llwyncelyn Farm, near Porth. We are delighted that work on installing the turbines will begin in 2023.

In June 2023, we were delighted to receive a commendation for Innovation in Delivering a Sustainable Education Facility at the Education Buildings Wales Awards.

The award was given in recognition of the pioneering work we are doing at Parc Stormy, providing opportunities for young people to learn about climate change & sustainability.
