When: 19th November 2015, 11am to 3pm
Over 300,000 raised so far…
Our solar projects are powered by our community. Together we’ve raised £300,000 so far to help put our ambitious plans into action. That’s over 40% of our Phase 1 target.
Three reasons to invest
The benefits of an investment in community energy are three-fold. Our investors receive a return on their investment while the community gets subsidised green energy. Thirdly, surplus income from the projects will go into a community benefit fund.
If all the exciting projects below go ahead and run as projected, £4 million would be paid into that fund over the 25-year project period.
- A 500kWp programme of solar roof installations.
- A 4.2MWp solar farm on the eastern edge of Avonmouth near Lawrence Weston, at the junction of the M5 and M49 motorways.
- A 4.568MWp solar farm near Puriton, Somerset, located next to the M5.
