Leominster Community Solar

We have installed a 49kW solar array on the  Bridge Street Sports Centre in Leominster.  This is generating clean, green electricity for the centre.  94 people have joined our co-op and will make a healthy return on their investment. This is a first for Herefordshire as a wholly community owned renewable energy project and one of the largest solar roofs in the county.

The £150,725 we required was raised by 22nd December 2011 – in fact the share offer was oversubscribed by over 40%.

We’re now looking for the next roof in Herefordshire.  Please get in touch if you have ideas.
