Introduction to Community Power Cornwall
Community Power Cornwall has evolved through community led demand for the ownership and integration of renewable energy technologies into everyday lives and settings. We hope to enable local communities to collectively tackle the threats of climate change, energy security and uncontrollable fuel cost rises by generating clean, renewable energy locally involving the whole community in understanding and operations.
Community ownership offers the opportunity to create a diverse, sustainable and secure energy supply infrastructure, under control of the community and with profits returned to the local economy.
Community Power Cornwall provides an economic model through which Cornish communities can own and benefit from the development of renewable energy initiatives.
Community Power Cornwall is developing a portfolio of renewable energy projects utilising wind, biomass, hydro and solar power. We will develop and operate small to medium scale community owned renewable energy installations with an initial focus on wind turbines generating electricity for sale via the national grid.
