Our community fund is focused on encouraging local people to support our solar farms. Their investment ensures the solar farms directly benefit our communities.
“We are very proud to have played a part in the creation of the UK’s first post-subsidy community owned solar farm at Creacombe."
“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.”
“Creacombe is a bold and pioneering project that can lead the way for a real step-change in the UK.“
“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."
