Community-owned solar farms

Communities have come together, pooling investment, to fund their own solar farms. West Solent Solar Cooperative is one such initiative where over 500 people in Hampshire invested in a solar farm, bringing clean energy to their region, whilst each owning a share in the scheme. They chose Solarcentury as their partner. The solar farm was connected to the grid in June 2014 and powers close to 600 homes in the Pennington and Lymington areas.

Lock in a 25 year return on your land - lease your land for the term and let us handle the permitting, the design, build and maintenance of the project.

The land criteria guide offers guidance for checking how suitable your land is for a solar farm.

Working with the local community

When we start researching a potential site for a solar farm, we’re always careful to consider the local community and the environment. So much so, that we develop fewer than one in 100 of the sites we look at.

Community Fund

We recognise that the construction phase of a solar farm can be disruptive and we also recognise that there isn’t automatically a direct benefit to neighbours of the solar farm. We want the local community to share the benefits and we want to be a ‘good neighbour’. We have therefore established the Solarcentury Community Fund.

The fund will provide a monetary contribution for specified local and community projects which will be available after construction of the solar farm project.

We operate the fund in conjunction with our partner, Grantscape. To find out more click here.
