A Special Place – a retreat
A few more things that make Rhosygilwen, a Pembrokeshire retreat, so unique
The philosophy behind Rhosygilwen includes an absolute commitment to sustainable living.
Western Solar Ltd owns and operates the first large–scale solar park in West Wales. Using photovoltaic panels from MiaSolé, the pioneeringmanufacturer of thin film PV panels, the park generates 1,200kW of electricity. This is enough to power more than 350 homes.
Western Solar is committed to spreading the technical know how gained at Rhosygilwen to those interested in installing PV systems of their own. Over the park’s operational life, Western Solar will encourage sharing experiences on performance optimisation and the suitability of large scale PV to weather conditions here in West Wales.
Western Solar is also committed to sponsoring the arts through Menter Rhosygilwen. This charity has been set up to run the unique venue at Rhosygilwen and promote culture as an engine of rural regeneration. Combined with the support from Western Solar, it is hoped that social, environmental and economic sustainability can be achieved for the arts at Rhosygilwen.
