This is a past event, you can no longer book tickets.

On 24th June the communities of Dyffryn Ogwen and Padarn/Peris will be celebrating that they are now generating electricity for themselves by way of the plentiful rain which falls in these parts.This event is happening at the start of national community energy fortnight and is an invitation only event open to shareholders and community leaders.

The two communities have treaded similar ground during the last few months – rough ground at times which has meant a lot of hard work and endless patience but the big day has arrived: the official launches of the Ogwen community hydro-electric scheme on Afon Ogwen and Padarn/Peris community hydro-electric scheme on Afon Goch. Since they have shared the ‘blood, sweat and tears’ over the same period they are now jointly launching the hydro schemes.  There are no better examples of this than the Ogwen and Padarn/Peris hydros.
