Community solar farms
Our first community solar farm is now complete! It's in Lawrence Weston, on land owned by Bristol City Council. Our community partner in the project is Ambition Lawrence Weston. This is a 4.2 MW scheme.
Our second community solar farm is a 4.6MW scheme at Puriton, near Bridgwater. We took ownership of the farm in December 2015.
