A biomass boiler is now heating the exotic glasshouse, producing the perfect environment for orchids, cacti and vines to flourish. A ground source heat pump and solar panels
are also pruning the garden's fuel costs.
Sensitively crafted into the rugged Snowdonia landscape, this hydroelectric scheme is now producing power sold through our green electricity partner Good Energy, which goes towards conservation work in Wales.
Solar panels now generate enough electricity to power the tearoom at the famous garden and two electric vehicle charging points in the overflow car park. They even recharge gardeners' battery powered tools.
We’ve built the UK’s largest marine source heat pump here on the North Wales coast so that we can use the sea to warm up this Welsh mansion. It's part of our ongoing programme to use more renewable energy.
