About Energy Local Bridport

Our Club will enable locally generated renewable energy - initially from the Salway Ash wind turbine - to be bought by local domestic consumers. The scheme covers the area supplied by the Bridport distribution station, including the whole of Bridport town and the surrounding area from Chideock to Shipton Gorge, West Bay to Pymore, and parts of Salway Ash. 

In the longer term, we hope to add more green energy generation to the Club by building a community-funded solar farm, enabling us to extend the Club to take more members. In time, it may also be possible for Club members with their own solar panels to sell some of their export electricity to other Club members.

September 2021

Energy Local Bridport went live on 17 September with the first batch of 14 households. Those households have been informed. As soon as we are happy that everything is working correctly, we will contact the remaining members and invite you to switch. 

March 2021

We appreciate we have been quiet of late and nothing seems to have been happening, however, we are working hard in the background to set up the arrangements to get Energy Local Clubs working. Due to the pandemic and some technical setbacks, this is taking considerably longer than expected, but we are making progress and we can only thank you for your patience.

We are now preparing the Bridport Energy Local Club. We are planning to start the Club with a small number of households to check that the software works, and will then expand it out to all members.  

We are now expecting the trial Club to be up and running in early Summer 2021. 

If you are waiting to join the Club, we will contact you as soon as action on your part is required.  

Thank you for your patience!

Club currently full

The response to Energy Local Bridport has been remarkable, and the Club is currently oversubscribed. Thank you to everyone who has registered their interest thus far. New registrations are welcome, however, please be aware that a holding list is now in operation, and we can't guarantee that your household will be able to join the Energy Local Club at this stage.

If you register and join the holding list, we'll keep you updated regarding the progress of the Club, you may be able to join the Club at a later date. We hope to add some PV generation to the Energy Local Bridport Club over the next 12 months, which should enable the Club to welcome more members.
