Energy Local Cwmystwyth is recruiting members.

The project is to allow local people to benefit from using locally generated electricity. 

The generation is from a hydro plant, the photos show the weir and the beautiful Ystwyth Valley the source of the water power.  The rural area of the club covers several valleys and includes Devils Bridge, Ponterwyd, Goginan, Ystumtuen, Trisant and Cwmystwyth as well as their surrounding communities.  The area covered is outlined on the map below:

Members of the Club who use power when the generators are making electricity will be charged a lower unit price than they would otherwise.

This is a new project so may take some time to recruit enough people to get started. 

To express an interest in joining the Club please click "I am Interested" and complete your details. There is no commitment at this stage.
