Pomona Solar Co-op is harnesssing the power of the sun for the benefit of people in Herefordshire.
We’ve finished installing our first array at Stoke Edith, and now have 300kW of solar panels generating electricity which is being fed into local businesses, with surplus being exported to the grid.
We aim to install solar – both on buildings and ground mounted – to help reduce the carbon footprint of the county, provide a local and ethical investment opportunity for Herefordians and make us the premier county for community owned solar energy. This will help to diversify the rural economy, keeping jobs and savings locally, as well as greening our energy supply and improving energy security.
We want to ensure our arrays provide a response to the challenges of climate change, reducing flood risk and pollution and creating more places for wildlife to thrive. We want the local community to be able to enjoy our sites and learn from them.
If you’d like to be kept up to date with the development of the co-op please register for our email list – see the ‘Mailing list’ box on the right of every page.
