Year 6 pupils from Orchard Junior School, Dibden Purlieu were the first local school children to visit our solar farm….
West Solent Solar Co-operative completed the construction of the solar farm on the 27th June 2014 and started supplying electricity to the grid on that day.
The Co-op has 494 members and we are very grateful for their support and also for the support from the 50 people who bought bonds.
Our first Annual General Meeting took place on 18th April at Milford on Sea Community Centre. Just over 100 members of the cooperative gathered to hear that the solar farm has performed ahead of budget on generation and income. After the formalities of the AGM were completed Solar Century founder Jeremy Leggett jeremyleggett.net delivered an inspirational presentation on the fight against climate change. You can download material from Jeremy’s presentation ‘The Winning of the Carbon War’ at jeremyleggett.net/download-page .
