Severn Community Energy One CIC
Renewable energy (Environment)
Triodos Bank has enabled the construction and operation of a new 4.2MWp ground mounted solar PV project for Severn Community Energy One C.I.C at the land at the junction between the M5 and M49 on the northern side in Lawrence Weston, Bristol. The project is wholly owned by a community benefit society, Bristol Energy Cooperative.
Energy is a necessity in modern life but the current dependence on fossil fuels to provide it has a high environmental and social impact. We believe that a fundamental transition is needed away from a carbon based economy to a renewable one. By lending and investing in this sector we try to stimulate this transition, with our main focus on financing solar, wind and hydro energy.
