Cuckmere Community Solar Company

An inspiring project in Sussex

Since the launch of Cuckmere Community Solar Company in 2016, planning permission for our 4 MW solar farm remains and is set to be the first community owned solar farm in East Sussex.

We aim to build a solar farm that not only will provide clean energy for over 800 homes, but also a haven for wildlife, benefits to the community both financially and environmentally, and we believe, this project will inspire other communities across the UK to act by choosing renewable energy to help prevent the progression of climate change.

  • The world can prevent the worst of climate change by choosing renewable energy
  • People take more responsibility for their energy consumption and its impacts when they are involved in its production
  • Solar power can be good for wildlife, good for farming, good for shareholders and good for the community
