Minister unveils first commercial-scale wind project with Welsh local authority


Located on a brownfield site that was formerly a coal mine, the 4 MW development is a collaboration between developer Partnerships for Renewables (a Carbon Trust enterprise) and Caerphilly County Borough Council. The project is the first of its kind in Wales.

Two turbines will generate approximately 10 GWh per year, which is equivalent to the annual energy usage of around 2,400 average homes. A wind scheme of this scale is expected to avoid approximately 4,400 tonnes of COemissions per year.
