We are now seeking new projects for community investment.
Watch this space for announcements about forthcoming renewable energy projects that you can be a part of.
Our next exciting project will be anounced soon!
We've been blown away by the positive response to the Harveys Warehouse share issue. Not only has all the money been raised, but it's been done in record time, 85% from the Lewes community and no grants or bank lending! That's really something to be proud of. The installation is now complete, has been registered with Ofgem and is now fully operational.
We're in talks with other site owners on new projects and will be posting updates on further developments as and when they happen. Get in touch by e-mail if you want to invest in future projects.
So - congratulations to everyone involved - Harveys, Southern Solar and especially the Lewes public. We've taken the first step on the road to energy resilience for Lewes District!
