Low Carbon Gordano has now raised over £3 million from two share offers. The most recent, to raise funds for the Ham Lane Solar Array at Kingston Seymour in North Somerset, closed at the end of July 2015  having raised £970,000 in just 6 weeks from 175 investors at an average of £5,600.

The community share offer to raise funds for the Moorhouse Farm Solar Array closed in September 2014 with the full £2.2 million having been raised.

Thank you to everyone who invested in these projects. Everyone who buys shares becomes a member of Low Carbon Gordano and has a vote at the Annual General Meeting where major policy decisions are taken. We now have 460 members.

Further share offers will be posted on this website as and when they arise. If you would like to register your interest in becoming a member by buying shares to fund a future project please send an email to and we will keep you posted.

New Projects

We have now installed three roof  mounted projects on community buildings in Long Ashton and Clevedon totalling 66kW. These were completed by the end of December 2015 to beat the very large Feed-in-Tariff reductions now in force by the Government. We are in negotiations over another 50kW roof scheme on a commercial roof. This has been pre-registered so will qualify for the higher FIT rate.     See our roof schemes HERE      At present we have no new schemes under consideration. We are looking for large community or commercial roofs with large daytime demand willing to enter 25 year roof leases.
