Bringing solar farms into community ownership

YCE negotiates the purchase of local solar farms on behalf of the community and offers local people the opportunity to become shareholders, giving residents of the Yealm area, and Devon priority over investors living further afield. All our investor members will be offered a fair return on their investment, an equal say in how our business is run and the opportunity to make their savings do good.

We expect to launch our first share offer in early 2019.

Supporters will be sent copies of the investment prospectus as soon as it is available. If you are not already a supporter and would like to be kept informed please complete the Application Form.
