RWAS chief executive, Aled Rhys Jones, emphasises the importance of responsibility and sustainability.
“We are committed to minimising our impact on the environment and reducing our carbon emissions. We are delighted that the EDF Renewable for Business tariff guarantees that all the electricity we use will originate from 100% renewable sources with a zero-emission rating, which will enhance our long-term sustainability goals.”
The RWAS is also currently installing a new 300kW solar system on the roofs of the livestock buildings on the showground in Llanelwedd, Builth Wells. This will be supported by the generous funds raised by last year’s feature county, Clwyd.
“The installation of the solar panels is a key part of our pathway to become greener and protect us against some of the eyewatering increases in energy prices we’ve seen over recent months,” added Mr Jones.
“We are pleased that we have appointed a contractor to install the new panels and hope that the work is completed before this year’s show.”
