Glyn Rhonwy Hydro Electric scheme


Hywel Williams MP said,

“I welcome the approval of the Glyn Rhonwy Pumped Storage Scheme in Llanberis. This scheme will be the UK’s first new grid-scale power storage facility in more than 30 years and is a welcome investment in Llanberis.”

“I hope measures will be put in place to mitigate any disruption during the construction phase of this scheme; the interests of local people must be secured.”

“I will be pressing to ensure that local communities and community Councils in particular, receive sufficient financial contributions as a consequence of this development.”

“Where concerns have been raised, it is essential that steps are taken to address these with relevant parties, particularly issues surrounding environmental matters.”

Siân Gwenllian AM said,

“Developing new renewable sources of energy is vital for Wales and I’m pleased to hear that the Glyn Rhonwy scheme in Llanberis has been given the go-ahead.”

“The Arfon area is quickly becoming an internationally recognised area for green energy. We already have Europe’s largest pumped storage scheme (Dinorwig) and a growing number of small, community-led hydro schemes.”

“The concerns of local people about Glyn Rhonwy need addressing and I hope there will be an announcement shortly about the financial community grants that need to be made available locally as a result of this scheme.”
