The Moorhouse Lane Solar Array is our first local community energy generation scheme. It consists of some 7,200 solar panels and will produce enough electricity for around 500 homes. It cost just over £2 million pounds which was raised through a community share offer in 2014. The project has been fully operational since April 2015. Read more about Moorhouse Lane Solar Array

Solarsense, our partner in the Moorhouse project, developed the project and secured a lease with the landowner and obtained planning consent. A second successful share offer was launched in May 2015 and raised £915,000 in just 6 weeks. Solarsense completed the installation and final testing and commissioning was carried out at the end of November 2015. Read more about Ham Lane Solar Array.

 

Just before the end of 2015 we installed our first three roof projects again with the help of Solarsense. Read more about our roof projects.

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.
