Craig y Geifr Wind Energy Hub


The site is located on an area of upland pasture approximately 4km northeast of Ogmore Vale on the border between the County Boroughs of Bridgend and Rhondda Cynon Taff.


At this early stage we believe that the project will consist of 8 turbines with tip heights up to 150m and an energy storage facility (together referred to as a Wind Energy Hub). We will work hard to ensure that the design of the wind farm minimises noise impacts and is complimentary to the existing wind farms in the area.


The site is still in early-stage development with Belltown Power’s Project Team working closely with relevant specialists to carry out site surveys and site assessments. We are targeting 2024 for a full planning submission, with a view to starting construction in 2026, subject to planning consent.


We recognise a fundamental part of good project development is early consultation to ensure local communities and stakeholders are given the opportunity to provide feedback and are kept informed of a project’s progress.

As part of this consultation process, we are excited to share initial project information for Craig y Geifr Wind Energy Hub and look forward to engaging with any questions you may have about the project. We ask that your questions be addressed to the project team, with your contact details included so that we can respond personally to your enquiry. You can contact the project team directly by emailing or complete our enquiry form here.

Once we have completed our initial site surveys and further developed the likely design, we will hold Public Consultation events for you to share your views and thoughts.  We will also engage with local Community Councils and stakeholders to achieve the best possible design outcome, seeking to maximize the opportunity for the local communities to benefit from this project.

Information on these events and further consultation will be posted here in due course.



Belltown Power fundamentally believes that onshore wind projects should benefit the communities that host them, regardless of whether the project is subsidised or not. Communities local to the Craig y Geifr Wind Energy Hub will benefit through our ground-breaking community ownership scheme:

  • Offering local community organisations 1% of the equity in the project for free.
  • Enabling them to buy a further 4% of the equity at cost once the project is operational and potentially more at market value if desired.

We also commit to providing £5,000 per MW per annum (RPI index linked) of Community Benefit. We want to hear your views on how Craig y Geifr Wind Energy Hub can best support your community.


Belltown are passionate about education and the local environment.  We will engage with schools local to the project with a view to offering visits to the project once operational if possible, as well as the other educational activities and resources provided through The Belltown Education Programme.

As with all of our projects, we will ensure that the Craig y Geifr Wind Energy Hub delivers a net ecological benefit through careful habitat design, habitat creation and habitat management.
