Current share offers we are working with: JCC Community Woodheat: heating a school in Leicestershire with locally sourced wood. Ending 11 December. We are also running a small pioneer share offer for Ludlow Hydro, please call us for more details
We’re delighted to say that Wedmore Community Solar , Dingwall Wind Co-op and Llangattock Green Valleys Hydro share offers are all complete – that’s well over £2m subscribed for community shares! JCC Community Woodheat still has 7 days to run and is at 72%.
We’re busy working on the next crop – several solar projects on roofs and in fields, lots of projects funded by RCEF, a bid for the new mentoring fund, hydro for Bury with Bee Sustainable, and some interesting demand-side work for the local grids of the future. Plus of course our existing projects in development – Crida Wind, Ludlow Hydro, working with Cwm Harry on Ludlow AD, the ‘sun of’ Leominster Solar and many more. All driven by committed volunteers who understand why renewable energy is important and want to own and run it it themselves.
The rain has come right on time as we enter what is hopefully the final week of installation. The famous stump that we found at the base of the weir has been removed finally and last Friday the slab which will sit below the inlet screen was cast. The screen is set to go in place towards the end of the week – then we can remove the temporary dam and the installation will be physically complete. Our turbine ought to see its first flows for commissioning purposes sometime next week – if that goes well we hope to harvest a little of this rain perhaps even before October is out.
