I was lucky enough to be invited to film at a historic beauty spot in Wales recently as Europe’s largest electricity generating
The giant steel
Powered by an overflow of water from the River Dulais at the Aberdulais Falls, the waterwheel will generate all the energy needed to provide heat and electricity for the National Trust attraction. A second hidden hydro called ‘Edvard’, will generate around 400,000kwh a year which will be sold via the grid to Good Energy. Money raised will go back into National Trust conservation projects.
It really is exciting to see such a majestic, historic waterwheel back in action, fit to generate electricity for this generation and the next.
