Ynni Cymunedol Cymru

Ynni Padarn Peris

nni Padarn Peris is a sustainable renewable energy scheme which uses hydro power to create electricity. The energy is used by the local community, with any surplus sold into the National Grid.

You’ll find it on the River Goch in Llanberis – right in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park here in North Wales.

The 55kW scheme was born out of the local community’s desire to use its natural local resources (OK, the plentiful rain) to generate an income which would go back to local people.

The driving ambition was that it should create economic and social benefits that would stay in the local community. An entirely appropriate trickle-down, you might say.

Ynni Padarn Peris was funded by local shareholders – the ordinary folk and families of Llanberis – who bought into the scheme at a minimum investment of £250. After 3 years in the making, the hydro scheme finally started producing energy in March 2017.
