Wind turbines for Aberystwyth University


These circles mark the sites where Aberystwyth University is planning to erect wind turbines - one just beyond Fferm Penglais, the new student village, and two at Gogerddan. The three 30 metre, 250Kw turbines could apparently provide 10% of the Uni's electricity needs.

As the consultation information says,
"The project, which would cost about £2.5 million, would also help protect the University from future increases in energy costs, help to ensure security of supply, assist in meeting targets to reduce carbon emissions and provide a reaching resource for students to access as part of their studies".

Details about the consultation events taking place in the next three weeks, and the next steps in the project, can be seen here and here
