UK’s first consumer-owned wind energy farm gets the green light


The UK’s first ever consumer-owned wind farm has been given the green light for construction, after securing £1.1m in funding from the Welsh Government. 

Ripple Energy, the company behind the project and the UK’s first clean energy ownership platform, has said the single-turbine wind farm – ‘Graig Fatha’ – will be completed in autumn this year, near Coed-Ely in South Wales. It will also be funded by an additional £1.8m loan from the Development Bank of Wales, as well as another £1.3m from the 675 Ripple members who have so far signed up and invested.
