Investing in our community…
our future

Solar energy is a tried and tested way of producing electricity and replacing non-renewable fuels such as gas, coal and oil. In doing so it also reduces the damaging emissions of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.

Wedmore Community Power Co-operative Ltd was set up in 2013 by people living on the Isle of Wedmore in Somerset to enable their community to use solar energy.


With funding from our shareholding members, we have installed a 1mW solar photovoltaic plant in two paddocks screened by new hedges, just to the north of Wedmore. It has been generating clean energy since October 2013.

Note: The share offer closed in November 2013
