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.
V27 paused on 7th April 2017 following the discovery during routine servicing of a damaged gearbox mounting.
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 24,690kWh to end of March 2017.
