Na i Beilonau Dyffryn Tywi - No to Dyffryn Tywi Pylons

Na i Beilonau Dyffryn Tywi - No to Dyffryn Tywi Pylons!

Rwy’n siŵr eich bod yn ymwybodol erbyn hyn o’r cynlluniau gan Bute Energy i sefydlu coridor o beilonau a gwifrau trydan yn cysylltu fferm wynt yn y Canolbarth i’r Grid Cenedlaethol, a hynny drwy Ddyffryn Tywi.

Mae’r cynnig hwn wedi creu cryn dipyn o ofid yn yr ardal leol, oherwydd ei effaith gweledol ar y dyffryn, sydd yn enwog am ei harddwch a’i dirwedd brydferth.

Tra ein bod yn llawn sylweddoli’r angen am fwy o ynni adnewyddadwy, rydym o’r farn bod modd cludo’r ynni yma drwy wifrau o dan y ddaear, a fyddai’n sicrhau ffynhonnell newydd o egni gwyrdd tra hefyd yn parchu’r gymuned leol a threftadaeth yr ardal.

Arwyddwch ein deiseb, sy’n galw ar osod y gwifrau yma dan y ddaear, a dangoswch nad ydym yn barod i dderbyn peilonau ar hyd Dyffryn Tywi.

You may be aware of the proposals by Bute Energy to establish a corridor of energy pylons and cables from a wind farm in Mid Wales, going through the Tywi Valley to join the National Grid.

This has caused significant concerns in the local area, as this would have a significant visual impact on the valley, which is renowned for its natural beauty and stunning, picturesque landscape.

Whilst recognising the need for increased renewable energy sources, we believe that transmission of this energy can be achieved by placing these cables underground, which would ensure a new source of green energy and respect the local area’s communities and their heritage.

Sign our petition for the undergrounding of these cables and help us demonstrate the strength of opposition to the proposed pylon route in the Tywi Valley.

    Minimise electrical field by going underground please.

    I am totally against these out dated eyesores. We have enough visible monstrosities carrying power as it is. These will have a negative affect on our beautiful country. The pylons are positively antediluvian. For these reason i am against our country being raped yet again.

    It’s not the green electricity I object to – it’s the fact that electricity does not travel THROUGH the cables, but alongside them, and spreads out all around. Do you remember that field of fluorescent lights – lit solely by the leaking power from the pylon cables many metres above? That was an installation in Bristol. See Richard Box https://www.artistaday.com/?p=4997


    The 1301 fluorescent tubes are powered only by the electric fields generated by overhead powerlines.


    “A fluorescent tube glows when an electrical voltage is set up across it. The electric field set up inside the tube excites atoms of mercury gas, making them emit ultraviolet light. This invisible light strikes the phosphor coating on the glass tube, making it glow. Because powerlines are typically 400,000 volts, and Earth is at an electrical potential voltage of zero volts, pylons create electric fields between the cables they carry and the ground.”


    We need the electricity to be insulated away from the wildlife and ourselves, and buried underground.

    No to the pylons, and the damage you’d cause with them. Offer us an insulated, underground network instead, please.

    This landscape must be preserved. Pylons would be an appalling form of visual pollution. An act of vandalism

    Pylons are outdated 1920’s infrastructure and an eyesore which are being taken down in other parts of the country so why are more being added elsewhere. Lay these cables underground.

    Connect energy park to nearer sub stations in either Hereford, buith wells, llandrindod wells?????? Why 60 Miles pylon run?

    I think everything should go underground

    We are failing the Welsh people agreeing to further aesthetic rape of the beauty of the country and it’s resources

    The Welsh people have been ignored when flooding of valleys use of land for military use it’s a poor show to allow further non consensual acts in the name of the greater good

    By all means let’s create eco energy but let’s be kind to our environment and the people who

    Live here.

    Underground cables if this was the new forest , the Cotswolds or any other place of beauty it wouldn’t even be suggested


    Come on Wales stand up for yourselves ♥️

    This proposal can not be allowed to go ahead. There are few areas in the world as beautiful as the Tywi Valley, and it would be scandalous if these cables are not at the very least placed underground.
