The Secretary of State for Energy & Climate Change granted consent for the construction of the new Pembroke Power Station in February 2009 after a thorough and robust determination process, which included consultation with the Environment Agency regarding operational aspects of the project.
In November 2011, the Environment Agency granted an Environmental Permit for the operation of the power station having fully considered its potential impacts and concluding that it will have no significant impact on the local environment.
Since then, no legal action has been brought against RWE npower or Pembroke Power Station and we are continuing to operate the plant in accordance with the strict conditions set out in our Environmental Permit.
RWE npower invested more than £1 billion in building the new Pembroke Power Station which produces enough energy to supply around three and a half million homes and plays a vital role in keeping supplies secure, reliable and affordable.
