Llangattock Green Valleys is a group of local residents who were drawn together by their shared need for positive, sustainable action in the face of the climate emergency confronting us. Over a decade ago, they started to look at ways of creating a greener, more sustainable future for our community by harnessing natural local resources including water, wood fuel and solar power to help people save money and reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. They also delight in exploring ways of working together to create a richer way of life, from growing more food locally, to helping people learn new skills and creating rewarding local jobs.

The organisation was formally incorporated as a community interest company in May 2010, and since then, they have won the Wales and UK heats of British Gas’ Green Streets competition and have delivered a range of innovative energy-saving and renewable-energy projects in Llangattock and the surrounding area.

Through the creation and operation of our five micro hydro schemes at Cwm Gu, Blaen Dyar, Abernant, Cwm Saerbren and Nant yr Hafod, and with the help of our shareholders, they are now generating and distributing sustainable electricity which is helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and our carbon footprint. At the moment they are looking to encourage and support people in reducing their energy usage as well as their bills in a future project under development. They also lease Ty'r Ash, which Llangattock Community Woodlands looks after, and work closely with and support other local community groups.

Llangattock Green Valleys are always looking for more people to get involved and support our work as directors or as hydro site volunteers. If you would like to get involved, help please contact Llangattock Green Valleys.
