Nant y Moch Reservoir
The Nant y Moch Reservoir from Pumlumon Fawr, Cambrian Mountains (August 2007).

In July 2005 the Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) published Technical Advice Note (TAN) 8: Renewable Energy (2005). This TAN indicates that there are only a few relatively unconstrained areas in Wales that are capable of accommodating large wind power developments. These areas make up the 7 Strategic Search Areas (SSA) capable of accommodating large (>25MW+) wind power developments.

Unfortnately one of these 7 areas is Area D “Nant-y-Moch” which the TAN suggests have an “indicative generating capacity” of 140MW (approximately 50-70 modern wind turbines of 100m in height). See Map.

This photograph captures the majority of the SSA (the land on the far side of the lake), so if you want to see this view as it is now, come and visit as soon as possible as in a few years all this whole area will be covered in turbines.

I keep waiting for a virus to wipe us all out. Unfortunately the ones that have arrived are unsuitable for the task at hand.
