The NT Stackpole centre in stunning Pembrokeshire was the site of the Jones family holiday (for the 5th year running!) Access to Pembrokeshire and with two sandy beaches within walking distance its a nice place to stay. But the site is so much more than a nice place to stay. From a bus man’s holiday perspective I had not stayed there since is 360kw wood chip biomass went in (was previously the single largest LPG user in the NT). It also has the largest solar thermal system in the National Trust and it was good to see the new electric vehicle charging point. Whats next for the site? Electricity is still a big carbon emitter and cash consumer. We need to continue with the efficiency push but this site lends itself well to a 50kw PV system? (I wonder?)
From a job front it’s also one of the first sites in the NT to claim renewable heat incentive payments. ‘Interesting’!!! process Ofgem have there on sites with district heating.
