What can I say? Location, Location, Location. (oh and weather) NT Wales team and guests over at Plas Newydd yesterday

Yesterday and we were all in show and tell mode. The sun was hot, skies were blue and 50 people from NT Wales plus a few from the fit for the future network were over with us. The purpose of the day was to look at what we are calling the big three. The three biggest renewable energy projects completed to date in the National Trust (Plas Newydd, Hafod y Llan and Hafod y Porth…completed ish for the third one). With people from properties all over Wales there was a real buzz around what is possible. We were fielding questions around the technical bits and also questions around “what we could do at other properties…” Our furthest travelling visitor was Phil from Perth. (Not Australia)

Nuff said... renewables can be confusing even for professionals. (image R .Williams. Funny!)

We had a good look at the Marine source heat pump and PV at Plas Newydd in the morning. The weather really did make the day. There is no bluer sky than the one above Plas Newydd on one of those days. At lunch time it was over to the mountains for a farm and hydro afternoon. Tenants from the NT Dolaucothi estate in Carmarthenshire were up to look at possibilities and The Bodnant team were over to look at solutions. The feedback has been really positive and  i think this is the start of more sharing to come… hope we can sort the weather as well next time

Nothing beats seeing and experiencing renewables close up. it show's you what is possible

    That was the moment that I had realised my sun cream was in the car. The car being 25 miles away on Anglesey – Doh!!! Protect your bald head was my lesson of the day. Thanks as always for the flattering photograph messr’s Jones and Williams.
