Grannell Energy

About us

Grannell Community Energy are pleased to be behind a new Welsh community energy project with a soon to be commissioned wind turbine. Our 500kW Enercon wind turbine will be installed near Cribyn, Lampeter in Spring 2019.

It will stand on a 50m tower with a 48 metre blade span, and we are expecting it to generate about 1700 MWh of electricity per year (enough for about 280 homes).

Our mission is to help mid-Wales develop a clean energy future, mitigate climate change by installing renewable energy generation, and to do this in a fair and democratic way by spreading the ownership and benefits across the community rather than concentrated in the hands of the few.

Grannell Community Energy is a Community Benefit Society, meaning that anyone (aged 16+) can become a member by purchasing shares hence become a part-owner of a wind turbine

We will be setting up a local community fund aimed specifically at the people living closest to the turbine. We have committed to putting £5000 every year for the next 20 years into this fund (until the Feed in Tariff ends). This will be spent in consultation with the local community.
