Triodos Bank has launched an £850,000 renewable energy bond offer on its crowdfunding platform to finance the operational 5MW Ferry Farm solar site. The farm – which was built in 2016 – is located in Selsey near Chichester and consists of 18,700 solar panels. It was initially constructed as a commercial enterprise but was brought into full community ownership in March 2020 by Ferry Farm Community Benefit Society, facilitated by a loan from Leapfrog Bridge Finance. The majority of this loan was then refinanced in September 2020 after securing a long-term loan from Triodos.
