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 50-80 households to join the scheme - the exact number will be confirmed after a modelling exercise has been completed. 

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. 

To find out more come and meet us at the following events:

  • Bridport market, Bucky Doo Square on 11th January and 18th January 2020
  • Public information meeting, Bridport Town Hall Monday 20th January 2020  7.30pm
