How it all started…

It all began when representatives of Community Energy Plus came to chat to us about projects currently active in Cornwall.  Community Energy Plus is an “award-winning social enterprise that provides complete energy answers to help householders in Cornwall enjoy warmer, energy efficient homes as part of a more sustainable future” (direct quote from their website). They are funded by a number of organisations including Cornwall Council, NHS Cornwall & Isles of Scilly, the Department for Energy and Climate Change, and with money from the Big Lottery Fund.

As a result, a number of meetings followed, and a group of about 25 individuals emerged with an interest in forming a proper association.  In November 2014 we obtained funding from energyshare.  This money (£10,000) has been used to work out and implement a proper structure for SHARE, to pay for feasibility studies for possible renewable energy projects in the Parish, and to initiate our first major project.
