1MW community-owned solar farm in Dunvant.
‘The most commendable sustainable electricity generation project undertaken by a community group across Wales and England.’ (2017 Community Renewable Energy Project Award WINNERS)
This 1 Megawatt solar farm, that is enough electricity for about 300 houses, is the first community-owned solar farm in Wales. All profits are being used for regenerating the local area by supporting land-based livelihoods and building education and skills in order to make the rural economy more environmentally sensitive and stronger.
Further to a successful community share offer which raised circa £900k, Gower Power Co-op CIC put this solar farm into community ownership in 2017. Returns to investors are projected at 5% per year.
