The Ferry Farm Community Solar Project now provides clean energy sufficient to power 1,300 homes.
It is situated at Ferry Farm because the Manhood Peninsula has the best sunshine record in the UK.
This innovative project, which offers ownership shares to organisations and individuals in the local area,
is expected to produce up to £20,000 every year for a fund to support local community groups.
Selsey Community Forum has been asked to administer this fund for a trial period of 3 years from 2017.
For more information about this community solar project, visit the Ferry Farm website.
