With the help of Welsh Government funding, we are driving forward the development of  community renewable energy projects in the Fishguard and Goodwick area –   to explore, asses and develop a range of new initiatives. An important aspect of this work is to extend renewable energy expertise in our area.

Our aim is to work with our community to make local renewable energy available  at a fair rate and to generate enough renewable energy to power our community by 2035.  In order to achieve this we are:

  • actively working to repower our existing Wind Turbine from 225kW to approx 500kW
  •  investigating options for community – wide rooftop solar roll-out – in the immediate term piloting with two local dairy farms
  • Investigating the feasibility of a substantial hydrogen generation project linked to a ground-based solar array
  • initiating a community engagement strategy and community energy plan to achieve our ambition.
