Winner of extra shares to be announced shortly
Grannell Community Energy
Grannell Community Energy are pleased to be behind a new Welsh community energy project with a soon to be commissioned wind turbine. Our 500kW Enercon wind turbine will be installed near Cribyn, Lampeter in Spring 2019.
It will stand on a 50m tower with a 48 metre blade span, and we are expecting it to generate about 1700 MWh of electricity per year (enough for about 280 homes).
Our mission is to help mid-Wales develop a clean energy future, mitigate climate change by installing renewable energy generation, and to do this in a fair and democratic way by spreading the ownership and benefits across the community rather than concentrated in the hands of the few.
Grannell Community Energy is a Community Benefit Society, meaning that anyone (aged 16+) can become a member by purchasing shares hence become a part-owner of a wind turbine.
We want lots of people, across Wales, across the UK and outside the UK, to buy shares to support us. By buying shares and becoming a member, you will be helping to mitigate climate change, helping to build a stronger and more resilient community in mid-Wales, plus you will get a fair rate of interest on your shares. Collectively we have the power to create a positive future for our children and grandchildren and we welcome you to join us in making this happen.
Our share offer is open. If you want action to support local communities, action on climate change, action on local renewable energy, please buy some shares and tell your friends and family about our share offer.
The Grannell Share offer is now launched and will run until 14th December.
Please download and read the Share Offer Document here.
You can apply for shares via our online form or via the form in the back of the share offer document.
STOP PRESS: GCE have now secured a share underwrite so we now know the project is definitely going ahead – we still want as many members as possible of course
