Bro Dyfi Community Renewables (BDCR) is a community owned renewable energy company.

We generate clean electricity to the local distribution network. We hope that this website will be of interest to our Members, to other community groups who would like to set up their own renewable energy enterprise, and to students working on renewable projects.

For an overview of the BDCR story, we have created a short video you can watch on the right. For those of you interested in the full details, they can be found here on our About Us and How We Did It pages. Thank you for your interest in BDCR.

Our Generators

Bro Dyfi Community Renewables first installed wind turbine is a Vestas 75kW machine, bought second hand and installed in 2003 on the hill above the Centre for Alternative Technology, near Machynlleth. The turbine originally supplied CAT with power, and the surplus was exported to the local electricity distribution network. For full details, please click here.

Using European funding secured through Mid Wales Energy Agency, ecodyfi and Member investments, we bought a second hand Nordtank NTK500/37 500kW wind turbine which was installed on Mynydd Glandulas in 2008. For full details, please click here.



If you belong to a community group who would like to set up their own renewable energy enterprise, or you are a student working on renewable projects as part of your educational course, you may find this particular page very useful in support of your endeavours.

There are a number of organisations working in the community energy sector in Wales and across the UK that provide useful support and advice for new initiatives.



We use our blog to communicate all of our latest news and relevant activities. This is the place to visit for more in-depth articles about the day-to-day reality of working in renewable energy as part of a community owned renewable energy company.

As well as our Frequently Asked Questions page, our blog could also prove to be a valuable resource for any other groups considering such a project themselves, or students researching the industry.
