£938,000 of Additional Funding Agreed for 3 Onshore Wind Projects


The Welsh government has agreed additional funding of £938,000 to three community-led and locally-supported onshore wind projects in south Wales.

Carmarthenshire Energy Limited, a small Welsh-based community developer, will receive a loan of £785,000 and a £25,000 grant towards the building of a 500kW turbine in rural Carmarthenshire.

Awel Aman Tawe, a community-owned project that supports the development of wind energy in the upper Amman and Swansea valleys, will receive a further £86,000. The £6.5m project set up in 2000 will construct two 2.35MW turbines due to be completed in 2017.
