Two 100 metre-tall turbines, which generate enough low-carbon electricity to power about 2,500 homes, were built by Awel Co-op, a local co-operative. One of the forces behind the initiative was Possible, a charity that works to bring people together to combat climate change. It is being supported by The Times in this year’s Christmas Appeal. The turbines were erected in 2016 after 18 years of planning. Within 12 months they had made up for the carbon emitted through their production. They now churn out more than 12,500 megawatt hours of clean electricity a year — plus revenues that have boosted one of the poorest communities in the country.
