Funding for a sustainable tomorrow
The profits generated from our solar farms are reinvested into a range of community-driven initiatives. From supporting educational programs that foster sustainability awareness among the youth to funding environmentally conscious infrastructure projects, we strive to create lasting positive change where it matters most – right here in South Hams.
Community Energy Together
We belong to the umbrella organisation Community Energy Together. By partnering with five other organisations, we reduce risk and increase opportunity. Our combined portfolio of seven solar farms will increase the community-owned solar energy in England and Wales by around 20%.
“With fantastic support given by Yealm Community Energy, we were able to part-fund an outdoor classroom and woodland pond that have been fantastic teaching aids for our biology and woodland ecology lessons.”
“For the Eden Project, the availability of relatively cheap and secure renewable energy is crucial to both our day-to-day operations and the future energy and price security young businesses need. I believe Creacombe Solar Farm is a great example of a win/win. It will provide local energy, funds for the community and is a symbol of robust independence. I totally support it as a positive commitment to the rural economy."
“Creacombe is a bold and pioneering project that can lead the way for a real step-change in the UK.“
