Local attitudes are already changing in favour of wind energy around the proposed site of Britain's first community led wind farm. After six months of local consultation, community group Awel Aman Tawe (AAT) has revealed that providing local people with information and visits to existing wind farms has led to an increase in support for the project in the Upper Amman and Swansea Valley area. In April, when the project was launched, 29% of calls to AAT's office were negative, and 43% positive. In August, however, only 10% of calls were negative, with 67% positive.
