United Kingdom – Infinite renewable energy company has launched its first Energy Centre at the Rassau industrial estate in south Wales.
The combination of wind turbines, solar photovoltaics, and battery storage will supply reliable, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly power directly to customers.
The facility is part of the Generation Storage Consumption Supply project (GSCS) and is one of up to seven local energy center initiatives in South and West Wales that will get grant funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Albion Community Power, Infinite’s funding partner, has contributed £5.5 million in match funding. The overall CAPEX for the schemes is £14.4 million, with the ERDF contributing £8.9 million.
Andrew Crossman, Director, Infinite says: “The GSCS Energy Centre represents a step-change in the de-centralized distribution of low carbon and renewable energy. The Rassau scheme aims to share the benefits of multi technology generation within the immediate community, providing discounted renewable power and reducing the CO2 emissions in the area.”
