Across England and Wales, six community solar farms have generated £60,000 of surplus profit that will be used to support their local communities. The farms have been supported by Community Owned Renewable Energy (CORE) Partners – a social investment partnership between Big Society Capital and charitable trust Power to Change – and profits generated by the sites have been pooled into an annual benefit fund managed by the group. Now CORE, together with its advisors Finance Earth, is set release this funding, in what is the second batch of such funding following a similar release in 2020. The £60,000 brings the total amount of funding over the last two years to over £255,000.
