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

16 June 2014 | News
Partnerships for Renewables: Oakdale wind farm

First commercial-scale wind energy scheme to be delivered in conjunction with a Welsh local authority officially launched by Welsh Minister for Natural Resources and Food, Alun Davies AM.


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.
