Welcome to Cwm Arian Renewable Energy

Welcome to the website of community benefit co-operative, Cwm Arian Renewable Energy (or CARE, for short)

 

CARE is a group  of community volunteers who have been working for several years to develop a community owned wind turbine project in north Pembrokeshire.  In a consultation event in 2006, the people of Hermon, Glogue and Llanfyrnach were asked what would make their lives better, and many answered that they hoped to find a way to generate a sustainable income, fight fuel poverty, and own their own energy... so CARE was born to try and make hope into reality.
