Llandysul & Pont-Tyweli were first powered by electricity generated by hydro-power from the river Teifi from the 1920s. There were 3 generators at the Power House in Pont-Tyweli generating up to 100kW of power. This fell into disuse when the national grid reached the area in the 1940s.
Now that fossils fuels are so much more expensive and damaging to the environment and investment in renewable energy is growing, this is the ideal time to re-instate a hydro-power scheme on the river Teifi to benefit the communities of Llandysul & Pont-Tyweli and reduce climate change.
We have investigated the feasibility of Archimedes screws, Hydro Electric Barrels and Gravitational Water Vortexes.
These findings were presented at a public meeting on 25th November 2013. The response was extremely positive.
Since then we have prepared detailed applications for a Gravitational Water Vortex system and discussed with Natural Reources Wales. This is an exciting new technology not used yet in the UK. It has the potential for providing hydro power without the associated problems of disruption to fish and other river life, and sediment flow. So it could be widely adopted by communities across Wales with the potential to generate up to 50% of Wales' entire electricity requirements. We are working with Natural Resources Wales to prove that the system has no significant negative effects on fish migration and sediment flow even in special conservation sites.
