A committee serviced by ecodyfi, with representatives from:

What funds does it have?

Annual dividends of several hundred pounds come from the Pantperthog / Cilgwyn community wind turbine in respect of shares bought by the Energy Saving Trust. £1,300 came in 2004.

Some light bulbs provided by Utility companies which we give away esopecially to households on low incomes.

Current & proposed actions

In the first year, the villages of Corris and Glantwymyn Community Council areas were targetted for energy advice and donations. The aim is to:

  • Increase take up of Home Energy Check

  • Give compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs)

  • Hold talks at our own and other organisations' meetings, eg Corris, Cwm Llinau and Machynlleth

  • Run a campaign at Bryn y Gog including visits

  • Upgrade community buildings.
