Energy Local is transforming the electricity market for communities and small-scale renewable generators. Our mission is to help communities get more value from small-scale renewable generation by using the electricity locally.

The way it works is that you can buy cheaper electricity direct from those generating solar energy in the area.

It reflects local renewables’ true value and keeps more money local.

Energy Local co-operatives have already been formed in several areas of Wales, including Corwen, Crickhowell and Bethesda.

A new Energy Local co-operative is forming in this area.  Please see map below for areas included.

The scheme covers the area supplied from the Llanllwni distribution substation which includes Capel Dewi, Rhydowen, Pontsian, Cwrtnewydd, parts of Llanybyther, Llanllwni, parts of Gwyddrug, and Llanfihangel-ar-arth.

If you are interested in taking advantage of this offer, which is, unfortunately, limited to the first 80 households that sign up, please register your interest at www.energylocal.org.uk/capeldewi or email jane.nobrien@gmail.com if you would like to find out more.

Please note that there is no payment required to register your interest – it is like changing electricity providers.  Also, once registering your interest, there is no obligation to follow through if you later change your mind.  The move to Energy Local does not take place immediately, so please be patience after you have registered, as it typically takes several months to put everything in place for an Energy Local to ‘go live’ in your area.

Don’t miss this chance to reduce your electricity bills and use locally produced renewable electricity.
