BWCE is a not for profit community benefit society which focuses on developing clean local energy, community owned for the common good. Lending from Triodos Bank supported a number of their community owned solar PV projects, including a combination of 13 roof top schemes (on schools and community buildings) and 3 ground mounted schemes in and around Bath, alongside two larger ground mounted schemes in Somerset and Devon. In total these solar projects generate around 12,000kWh per year, enough electricity to meet the equivalent annual electricity demand from nearly 4,000 typical UK homes and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by the equivalent of the full carbon footprint of nearly 1,000 Bath and North East Somerset residents.
