Energy Group

The group's aim is to provide information, advice and practical help with the installation of green energy sources for local residents homes. The plan is to carry out a survey of existing solar, wind and ground source energy installations and document the extent of the local expertise. This will be shared on these pages.
The aim is also to write and publish, on this website, case studies from local residents, covering the many different types of installation in the village. It is hoped that a range of example cases from large solar (Wakelyns 10kW solar array photo) to small mobile home/boat (50W) examples will be made abailable to help making decisions with new installations.

Solar Together Suffolk

Since 2018 Suffolk County Council have run a scheme for local residents to install solar panels on their homes at significantly discounted rates by virtue of bulk purchase. They used local contractors and the project has been a success. Check the following link for details of new similar schemes run by Suffolk County Council.

Suffolk County Council hope to run the scheme again in the autumn of this year (2021). The link has information about registering for the new scheme.
