Wiltshire Wildlife Community Energy was created in 2013 with the goal of developing community-owned renewable projects in Wiltshire. Since then, we have successfully raised the necessary funds and started construction of two community solar farms: Chelworth and Braydon Manor. The Braydon Manor Solar Array is the largest community solar scheme in the UK.
As part of our work we brought the members of the local communities together and took both projects into community ownership by issuing shares purchasable in public share offers.
Aside from the Chelworth and Braydon Manor projects, we also have three community-owned rooftops solar schemes. You can learn more about them here.
As our name implies, the protection of wildlife is one of our top priorities. We work with Wiltshire Wildlife Trust in order to implement sound biodiversity plans in all our solar farms. Visit our Biodiversity page to learn more.
