ABOUT SOUTH SOMERSET COMMUNITY ENERGY

South Somerset Community Energy (SSCES) is a not-for-profit Community Benefit Society, whose aims are to reduce carbon emissions and fuel bills, especially for those in fuel poverty, throughout South Somerset.

The Society is owned by its Members (investors) and is governed by a Set of Rules approved by the FCA. A key point is that any surplus the Society generates has to be put towards other community energy and fuel poverty projects across the district of South Somerset.

We will fund and manage renewable energy installations in the district of South Somerset, starting with installing solar PV systems on schools, community buildings, businesses and private homes. Our pilot projects are in Yeovil, the principal town in South Somerset. We have fitted solar PV systems to Westfield Academy and Abbey Community Association's hall and these are now generating electricity.
