North Wales Wind Farms Donation

May 24, 2022

In April, TGP Cymru received a very generous charitable donation from a collective of North Wales wind farms: Gwynt y Môr, Rhyl Flats and Clocaenog Wind Farms.

The money will go towards our North Wales Communication Passport Service. This service supports children and young people with communication needs by providing them with a communication passport; a document with identifying information which child and young people use to introduce themselves to others and to share key information about themselves. The team creates and personalises each passport which often becomes a crucial tool in aiding the child or young person’s ability to communicate.

All three wind farms are majority owned by RWE, with other minority stake holders including Green Investment Group, Greencoat UK Wind, Stadtwerke München, UK Green Investment Bank and Siemens. The largest of the wind farms is Gwynt y Môr with a maximum generating capacity of 576MW. At the time of opening it was the world’s second largest offshore wind farm. It is located in the east of the Irish Sea, Liverpool Bay area. Also in that area is Rhyl Flats, a wind farm consisting of 25 wind turbines, each generating 3.6MW, enough to power 50,000 homes. Clocaenog Wind Farms is the newest of the three having begun operation in October 2019, and is unique of the group as the only on-shore wind farm, located in Clocaenog Forest. It is of roughly comparable size to Rhyl Flats.

Thank you to Gwynt y Môr, Rhyl Flats and Clocaenog Wind Farms!
