- Oxfordshire-based social enterprise to build UK’s largest community-owned solar park
LEO partner the Low Carbon Hub has purchased the rights to a 19 MW ground mount solar park which, once built, will be the largest community-owned solar park in the UK.
The project, called Ray Valley Solar, will generate 18 GWh of clean electricity each year, enough to power over 6,000 homes.
To finance the project, Low Carbon Hub has reopened its Community Energy Fund and is inviting investment from as little as £100 up to £100,000. Investors in the Fund will be joining over 1,300 people who together have invested £7 million in support of community energy in Oxfordshire. Before the Fund even opened, over £250,00 of investment had been pledged.
