In March 2016, Plymouth Energy Community (PEC) installed a 4.1MW solar array on a derelict brownfield site. The project, Ernesettle Community Array, was built in partnership with Plymouth City Council, Communities for Renewables CIC and the Four Greens Community Trust.

Not only will the array generate enough clean energy to meet the annual needs of 1000 homes but it will also generate an estimated £2,900,000 of additional income for PEC to help them continue to tackle fuel poverty and develop climate change projects. 

For more information on the project and the support they received from Leapfrog Finance, please have a look at the case study
