Green energy firms witches on to art.

A RENEWABLE energy company based in Powys is to use artwork from a local school in its promotional campaigns.

Dulas Ltd ran an art competition in primary schools in and around Machynlleth to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

The company, which is located on the Dyfi Eco Park, visited the schools to tell pupils about climate change, renewable energy and its own work, before inviting them to turn their ideas into eye-catching artwork.

Company marketing assistant Meryl Jones said the entries were so good that each of the schools had been awarded pounds 100 to be put towards energy efficiency equipment.

The children's artwork has gone on show in Machynlleth's Museum of Modern Art and the overall winner's poster will also be used in Dulas' promotional campaigns.

Over the past quarter century, the company has grown into one of the UK's leading renewable energy companies and has developed projects both at home and overseas.

It works on hydro powered schemes, provides planning and site finding services to the wind industry, and installs biomass heating systems and solar photovoltaics.

The company sponsors a scholarship at Machynlleth's Ysgol Bro Dyfi Secondary School.
