Clean Power is proposing a facility that will utilise sunlight and locally generated waste to produce renewable energy in the form of electricity, which will be transferred into the local grid network.
The energy recovery centre will use three proven renewable energy generation processes to create renewable energy:
The energy centre and photovoltaic panels could generate up to 18MW of renewable electricity – the equivalent of powering over 20,000 homes (based on typical consumption figures from Ofgem).
Below is a short video explaining more about Clean Power’s processes (please note that the dimensions for the Cwmgwili energy recovery centre may vary slightly from those referred to in this video).
We have now submitted our plans to Carmarthenshire County Council, which will undertake its own consultation before determining the planning application.
This follows a thorough pre-application public consultation on the plans that took place in Autumn 2013, during which 79 people attended a public exhibition held in Cwmgwili and 45 people provided written feedback on the proposals.
