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.


2017 Annual General Meeting

Our Annual General Meeting will take place on Saturday 22 April 2017 at Milford Community Centre, the lovely sustainable community facility which we have used for our two previous AGMs.

We have been fortunate to secure a talented keynote speaker for the AGM, Professor Abu Bakr Bahaj who is head of the Energy and Climate Change Division at the University of Southampton and Chief Scientific Adviser to Southampton City Council.

We have also been fortunate in having inspirational keynote speakers at our previous AGMs. At our first AGM in 2014, Solar Century founder Jeremy Leggett 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.

At our second AGM in 2016 we were treated to a fascinating presentation about the successful rollout of community energy in Germany, including community owned installations, as well as a presentation on the progress of the biodiversity management plan for the solar farm.

Our AGMs are much more than just a formality, and have become a great opportunity for our community of shareholders to meet and share success stories in the fight against climate change.
