Visit the Bath & West Community Energy (BWCE) tent at the Bath Festival of Nature and find out about their new public share offer, which offers people the chance to invest in community-run renewable energy projects.
There is a choice of short and long term investments, with the money raised allowing BWCE to take into community ownership a solar array near Crewkerne in Somerset. The array will be capable of supplying the equivalent annual electricity demand from 1600 typical homes.
Award winning BWCE was set up in 2010 and with the addition of the Crewkerne Soalr Array will become the UK’s biggest Community energy Company by generating capacity.
Pete Capener, chair of BWCE, said, “The South West has been at the forefront of community energy for some time. Supported by strong community networks, communities in the South West have built on the expertise and experience of renewable energy in the region.
Communities are increasingly asking the question, ‘what can we do?’ By moving from talk to action, they are demonstrating that by working together they can make sure that local projects really do deliver genuine local benefits.”
The latest share offer is open until July 12. Click here to go to the BWCE website to find out more or visit BWCE’s tent at the Bath Festival of Nature in Royal Victoria Park on Saturday, June 25. BWCE is supporting the Bath Festival of Nature 2016.
