South Brent Community Energy Society

V27 on 16 November 2015


Welcome to the society's website. Here you will find information about the Society and its projects.

The Society was established in 2011 by members of Sustainable South Brent to take forward a medium size wind turbine project for the benefit of the community. The Vestas V27 wind turbine, rated at 225kW, was installed in August 2013 and began generating electricity in September 2013.

The Society also owns the 9.88kWp PV array on the South Brent Recreation Association's pavilion building, which was installed in June 2014 and has generated over 90,000kWh to end of April 2024.
