Southill Solar

In operation since November 2016, our solar farm has a capacity of 4.5MW and will generate enough green electricity for 1,100 homes - most of the homes in Charlbury, Finstock & Fawler - for 25 years.

Inside a beehive

Southill Solar's beekeeper, Tom Worsley, takes us on a tour of our Thermosolar beehive - the first of its kind in the UK - which uses solar power to kill the parasitic Varroa mite.


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.
