Community Energy

Generating renewable energy is just one of our goals, but it was the first to come to fruition due to the need to generate a revenue for the SHOCK project, and was encouraged further (in the short term at least) by the arrival of Feed-in Tariffs.

In our first 6 years (to March 2016) our renewable energy systems generated 1,818,720 kWh electricity and saved 841000 kg of greenhouse gases.
