Solar PV

Gwent Energy with Green Park Power have been helping us install three solar PV arrays in (or very close to) our Parish:

The systems are owned by Sustainable Hockerton, helping us increase our generation capacity and spread our risk.

They were funded through a mix of loans from our members, and revenue saved from income from the wind turbine.

We were happy as a business to host the PV array as it supports a community venture but is mutually beneficial in that we receive the electricity produced at a discounted rate.

It also allows us to have the economic and environmental benefits of renewable energy without having to add debt to the business.
