Anglesey business plans for North Wales’ largest solar bank

Detailed information:

  PLANS to install North Wales’ largest solar power bank have been revealed. Anglesey Outdoors residential centre in Trearddur Bay hope to install £300,000 worth of solar panels next year. The 150 kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) panels, which convert the power of the sun in to electricity, will generate 120,000 units of electricity and save the 76 bed centre around £12,000 on energy bills per year.

Director, Roger Lacey said he was confident the project could bring major benefits to the area and inspire others to install the technology.
“We want to be a green as we can. We’re aspiring to be more eco-friendly and lower our carbon footprint. We try to educate people when they come here on keeping their energy usage down.
“Energy prices are increasing all the time so if we can control out energy usage then we can plan for our future.”
But Mr Lacey added that the land is an area of outstanding natural beauty and plans could be controversial.
“We are quite isolated here so it won't affect too many people,“ he said.
“We’ve got to weigh these things up, do we want to cheaper renewable energy or do we want to consider the visual impact? It’s all in the eye of the beholder. We’d like to be as sensitive as we can, but we think this will educate people around us to do something like this.”
If planning permission is granted, the PV panels will help to power the residential centre and industrial units. The company are relying on European funding bodies as well as self sustaining the project.
Elsewhere, go -karting business, Cartio Mon, in Bodedern, Anglesey are hoping to install a solar panel later this year.
Plans include setting up a 50 kilowatt PV panel on land to generate 40,000 units of electricity per year. It will cost approximately £150,000 and it is estimated the company could save around £10,000 on their energy bills per year. Other proposals could include installing a wind turbine on the property and powering go-karts from waste fluid generated from the site.
Martin Williams, managing director of Cartio Mon said he was confident they would be granted planning permission.
“It’s to try too cut our fuel and electricity bills and also take advantage of the feed in tariff and it’s another way of keeping our emissions down.” he said.
Renewable energy specialist and social entrepreneur, Alex Badley, who is helping to install the energy said that North Wales provided some premier sun hotspots for solar and wind power.
“People often think of Cornwall and Pembrokeshire as places to install renewable energy,” he said.

“We have quite a few hotspots for sunshine in North Wales like the Llyn Peninsula and also town’s in Conwy like Llandudno and Rhos on Sea have excellent sunshine record and Anglesey has a brilliant microclimate. There’s a massive demand for renewable energy now, either as a response to the feed in tariff and businesses are realising it’s giving them energy security for the future and helping them not go out of business.”
