- Generating Energy
Our purpose is to help local communities to reduce energy costs and become more sustainable by reducing their carbon footprint. More specifically we aim to raise funds from the community to enable us to install locally-owned renewable energy systems and use the surplus income from these systems to fund work that reduces people’s energy consumption – for example, by improving home energy efficiency.

Moorhouse Lane Solar Array generating 6% above predicted output.
Our first project at Moorhouse Lane has now been operational since April 2015 and by the end of October 2015 had generated more than 1.4 million kWh of clean renewable electricity and saved over 740 tonnes of CO2.
Moorhouse Lane Solar Array consists of 7,200 solar panels capable of generating enough clean electricity to power 500 homes. Read more about Moorhouse Lane Solar Array
Our second solar array at Ham Lane, Kingston Seymour, near Clevedon is nearing completion. The last item to arrive was the Inverter Station and this was installed at the end of October.
