Wind turbine Scheme at Llwyncelyn Farm

In 2017, Cenin Renewables were granted planning permission for two wind turbines to be installed at Llwyncelyn Farm, near Porth. Generating local income from the wind turbines means we can support the local community and we will make an annual donation during the turbines’ operational lifetime to three local primary¬†schools and two local community centres to improve the opportunities and learning outcomes for local residents.

Pontygwaith Primary School visit our combined renewable energy site at Parc Stormy, April 2018.

The turbines we originally applied for would supply the total energy needs of approximately 4500 houses for the next 20 years.

Planning was granted already, so why are we reapplying?

Since we first applied for planning permission in 2015, innovative industry design developments have increased the efficiency of wind turbines dramatically. To keep up to date with the most efficient machines available, we would like to amend our turbine specification with a small increase in blade length and hub height. This would allow us to generate approximately 30% more power to meet Welsh energy needs and in addition share more financial assistance with local schools and community centres. Installing the most efficient machines available makes economic and practical sense given that they will be generating for the next 20 years.

The comparative visualisation below show the difference in size of the wind turbines, approved and proposed.

We are a local company. We are passionate about creating opportunity and economic progress in South Wales. As part of our work, we encourage educational visits. Below you can see a selection of photos from the educational and corporate visits to Parc Stormy.
