A win-win-win for the environment, the community and you!
Paul Thorburn (Welsh rugby legend)
"I harnessed wind energy to help some of my goal kicking attempts on the field, and to now see the benefits returned to the local community from this resource, is incredible.”
Gillian Clarke (National Poet of Wales)
“This is the way power generation should go, village by village, community by community, with all profits going back to the people. This community-owned scheme, grounded in sustainable principles is one to support”

You are invited to invest in Awel and own shares in a new Welsh wind Co-op. You can subscribe to this Share Offer for as little as £50.
Awel is a Community Benefit Society and its project will own and run two 2.35MW Enercon wind turbines on Mynydd y Gwrhyd, 20 miles north of Swansea. These turbines will produce clean, low carbon energy and are forecast to generate an estimated 12,558 MWh of clean energy a year, enough to supply over 2,500 homes.
We started construction on March 14th 2016 with local company, Raymond Brown. The build programme is on schedule. The scheme is expected to be completed by December 2016.
Awel is your chance to directly own Welsh wind generation and take action on climate change. This scheme will harness the winds of South Wales to generate electricity using renewable technology. You will gain a projected 5% return per year as well as potential tax reliefs with the new Personal Savings Allowance scheme.
Profits will be used to support local charity Awel Aman Tawe in tackling fuel poverty and developing other renewable energy projects.
The team behind this Share Offer have already successfully delivered Egni Solar Co-op which has installed 119kW of solar on five local community buildings.
