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 is proud to administer this fund on behalf of the Ferry Farm
Community Solar Project. For more information, visit the Ferry Farm website.
Details of the next bidding round for grants from the Ferry Farm Community Grant Fund will be announced in due course; no further rounds are expected in the foreseeable future.
