Energy Local Bridport Phase 2

Exploring new solar generation to power Bridport homes and businesses.


Energy Local Clubs offer an innovative system for trading renewable energy between generators and consumers locally. Our pilot Energy Local Bridport Club will allow 55 households in the Bridport area to purchase the electricity generated by the 50kW wind turbine at Salway Ash.

New renewables for Bridport

Energy Local Clubs create new opportunities for community energy. In Phase 2 for Energy Local Bridport, we would like to invest in building a 250kW ground-mounted solar PV array in the Bridport area. The array would be financed by a Dorset Community Energy share offer, and the electricity generated sold to local households or businesses through an Energy Local Club.

A full planning application has now been submitted for a 1.2 acre solar array by the crossing of Pymore Lane and Dottery Road, north of Bridport. Formal consultation on the application is open and we invite the public to view and comment on the application.

Personally Letsgetenergized can’t believe that after so much work and the granting of planning permission this project should have been stopped by one person. What happened to the notion of community, the project would generate enough energy to power 250 homes annually which is good for local people and good for the Planet.

If you have a view or can help Local Energy Bridport turn around this stupidity then please let us know.
