Who we are

Southill Community Energy is a new
community benefit society. We aim
to help local people and groups reduce
carbon emissions.

Our first project is Southill Solar, a 4.5MW solar farm that will create enough energy to power most of the homes in Charlbury, Finstock and Fawler for 25 years.

CLOSING SOON: Bond offer

SCE is offering a new chance to invest in Southill Solar, through our bond offer (read more about it). 

We're offering a total of £350,000 in bonds. These pay annual interest at a fixed rate of 3.5% per year for 5 years.

It's looking like our bond offer will end well before the end date of 1 May - so apply soon.

Now, more than ever, the world needs the spirit, leadership example, and
actual emissions reductions that community energy projects like this

Southill Solar

Southill Solar is our new solar installation. It will generate enough green energy to power the equivalent of all the homes in its three nearest parishes, Charlbury, Finstock and Fawler, for 25 years. 

Community benefit

SCE has a community fund which we use to invest in a range of local, low-carbon projects. We use the projects we fund as exemplars, to help other communities find energy-efficient solutions.    

The environment

We're excited about the environmental benefits Southill Solar is bringing. As well as cutting carbon emissions, we're using the site to improve local biodiversity, supporting plants, birds and bees.

I think the best way to help stop climate change is if we all do just a little bit…”
