The response to Energy Local Bridport has been remarkable, and the Club is currently oversubscribed. Thank you to everyone who has registered their interest in past few weeks.
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.
We are in the process of setting up the Club, and we are looking for people who may be interested in joining. 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.
We are initially looking for 50-70 households to join the scheme. Members will be accepted on a first-come-first-served principle, based on the date of the registration of the expression of interest.
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.
