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. We are still waiting for Ofgem to approve our application for full feed in tariff accreditation.
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.
