CARMARTHENSHIRE County Council is delighted to report that 100% of the electricity it purchased and used, from April 2021 to March 2022, was generated from Welsh renewable energy sources.


This is up from 63% in 2019/2020 and represents a significant milestone in the Council’s transition to a low carbon authority.


During 2021/22, the electricity purchased and used by the authority was generated from the following sources: Biomass 1.25%, Off-shore Wind 58.70%, Solar 7.65% and Wind 32.40%.


Cllr. Aled Vaughan Owen, Cabinet Member for Climate Change, Decarbonisation and Sustainability said: “It is excellent news that all of the electricity that is purchased and consumed by Carmarthenshire County Council is from renewable sources and is generated here in Wales.


“Whilst this is a huge achievement we must not rest on our laurels as this is one strand of the overall effort to decarbonise our county to create a more sustainable, greener future for children and our children’s children.”
