If it's daytime, we're generating power! But don’t just take our word for it. You can now see how much electricity we’re producing by checking the latest generation data from the solar farm.


We’ve adopted an ambitious plan for biodiversity enhancement, and in the past year the site has undergone further habitat creation. Read the results of the third annual biodiversity survey of Southill Solar.

Now, more than ever, the world needs the spirit, leadership example, and actual emissions reductions that community energy projects like this embody.
