A community energy project near Stratford-upon-Avon is seeking a £5 million investment from members of the public for a 5 per cent annual return. Stratford Community Energy is coordinating the project which consists of a large solar farm installed on former DEFRA land. It will generate 4,696 MW hours of electricity annually and reduce the region’s carbon emissions by up to 1,800 tonnes per year. The community solar farm is only the second project in the country to benefit from a battery storage unit with a 1000 kW energy storage system to be installed on the site.
