CEL Project: Allt Cafan Hydro Scheme Pentrecwrt


Following successful community consultation, Carmarthenshire Energy Limited (CEL) has obtained planning permission for a new hydro power scheme at Allt Cafan on the river Teifi.

Chair of CEL, Dr Neil Lewis, said:
“As a community owned business, the scheme will generate income in the form of rent to the landowner, but the more significant surpluses will be reinvested by CEL in carbon saving and money saving measures for local businesses and householders. 
The investment will also restore a valuable heritage site, giving it a new function in keeping with its history.“
