Wiltshire Wildlife Community Energy (WWCE), in association with Bath and West Community Energy (BWCE), built a 1MW ground mounted solar panel array on land owned by the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust. The array is on low grade agricultural land and financial surpluses from the project will support Wiltshire Wildlife Trust's social wellbeing programmes in the local area, and a fund to finance fuel poverty reduction projects. 

The solar array is estimated to generate around 950,000kWh of electricity over its lifetime, enough to supply the equivalent of between 200 and 250 homes. 

Pure Leapfrog provided a loan of £100,000 to enable the project to go ahead by meeting wildlife related contingency costs that were outside the budget.
