Nottinghamshire Community Energy - Community Benefit Society

Nottinghamshire Community Energy (NCE) is a Community Benefit Society
set up in October 2015 by Mongoose Energy and NCE Board  to deliver
community-owned renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy supply
projects to benefit the local community. 
NCE's first project is a new 5MW solar farm at Langar Lane, Colston Bassett. This project has been developed by OPDE and has planning permission and a grid connection secured. 
It is hoped it will be operational by summer 2016. 
For this development to come to fruition over £850,000 was raised by local
investors - each person that invested is now a member of Nottinghamshire
Community Energy and will receive an incredible 7% on their investment.
The remaining funds were sourced from Triodos bank, Nottinghamshire County Council and Nottingham Energy Partnership.
