Cenin Renewables are committed to preserving the natural environment. At Parc Stormy we are gradually improving the site with the help of a local horticultural specialist. We have planted beech trees, and created wild flower areas which will attract and sustain bees and other insects.
Dry stone walls have been built around the renewable energy projects.
The site is home to a wide range of species including rabbits, slow worm, common lizard, field vole, moles, foxes, peregrine falcon, buzzard, pied wagtail, kite, and migratory swallows. Native plant species include cowslips, viper’s bugloss, eyebright, wild thyme, and bee orchid. The sign below doubles as a bee hotel.
We also have a hedgehog house to provide a feeding station and a place for hedgehogs to hibernate through the winter.
The wild flowers we have planted around the solar panels are a special mix containing Cosmos Sulphureus and Bipimatus Sensation, Trianon Cosmos, Sunbow Zinnia, Tithonia Torch, Polka Dot Cornflower, Pacific Beauty English Marigold, and Eschscholzia.
Our goal is to continue to enhance the natural habitat for the wildlife, flora and fauna we have on site and to create a nature trail for visitors to explore which links to the Newton Down wind site to the south of Parc Stormy.
