Salisbury Community Energy (SCE) is an exciting new opportunity locally. We’re delighted to say we have been awarded our second Rural Community Energy Fund government grant for feasibility work, and both the solar pv and hydro projects are underway.
We are a Community Benefit Society, formed in March this year. Our purpose is to drive the uptake of renewable energy (solar pv and hydro/microhydro) in the Salisbury area. Profits go into a Community Benefit Fund, with a particular focus on flood resilience. Salisbury came within millimetres of a disastrous city centre flood in February 2015.
Renewable energy installations are paid for by a community share offer. Local investors receive a fair return. Salisbury benefits from new renewable energy, financial gain, and community projects involving everyone. Site owners gain discounted electricity.
We look forward to hearing from you and thank you.
