Harness the power of Swansea Bay
Friday, Oct 18, 2013Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon will be the world’s first, purpose-built, tidal energy lagoon, capable of generating predictable, renewable electricity for over 120,000 homes for over 120 years.
We aim to create a power plant that means something positive for everyone in Swansea Bay.
The power of the Welsh tides can be harnessed to provide electricity that is renewable, secure, local, reliable and long-term. Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon is an investment in the region of £750 million and an opportunity for Wales to lead the UK’s tidal energy industry, while enjoying wider benefits that are diverse, unexpected and often unique for energy infrastructure.
In addition to clean power, Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon will create jobs, support onshore regeneration, promote tourism, and even foster art, sport and healthy living. Furthermore, we hope to offer low-cost electricity tariffs to locals, and a share offer providing everyone with a chance to own a piece of the lagoon while helping the UK move to home-grown, low-carbon energy.
