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 20MWh to end of July 2016.


Our neighbours in Ivybridge are planning a roof-top solar project at Lee Mill Inustrial Estate and have organised a drop-in meeting on Wednesday 18th January

The next domestic Energy Advice session will be on 24th January in the Old School Centre Details of all sessions here
