Say no to hydro power on the Afon Conwy in the Snowdonia National Park

Save the Conwy spent a great afternoon at the Fairy Glen with Patagonia’s Environment and Social Initiatives Europe Manager Mihela Hladin.

Inline with their work protecting rivers around the world Patagonia have been able to provide us with great advice and support. It was fantastic to be able to share our favourite place with someone as passionate as us about protecting it.

Along for the ride was UK Manager Alex Beasley and, rather excitingly for a former surfer from Cornwall, surfing legends Tony Butt and Gabe Davies.

    As we are all using the power that is generated and have to meet both national & International agreements in meeting all our demands for electricity, is the community able to offer a alternative plan to help meet our targets in our use of electricity when opposing this project? Or is this a NIMBY reaction? The local community were not vocal when the Hydro systems were installed in the Llanberiss Pass in 2014, so why this select this project to support?
