Who are we?

We develop renewable energy projects, we put those projects into community ownership and provide asset management and administrative services.

We also use our expertise and networks to help other ecologically focused enterprises get off the ground and maximise their impact.

Gower Power Co-op CIC is a community co-operative owned and controlled by its members. Our members are made up of the projects we develop and support as well as individual members of the Swansea community.

Projects

5MW solar farm in Llangefelach:

The community benefit society that will own Brynwhilach solar farm is called Gower Power Solar Ltd. The 5MW solar farm which is already operational is generating enough electricity for 1500 households. The date of the community share offer will be announced later this year. Please sign up for updates below.

1MW community-owned solar farm in Dunvant:

‘The most commendable sustainable electricity generation project undertaken by a community group across Wales and England.’ (2017 Community Renewable Energy Project Award WINNERS)

This 1 Megawatt solar farm, that is enough electricity for about 300 houses, is the first community-owned solar farm in Wales. All profits are being used for regenerating the local area by supporting land-based livelihoods and building education and skills in order to make the rural economy more environmentally sensitive and stronger.

Further to a successful community share offer which raised circa £900k, Gower Power Co-op CIC put this solar farm into community ownership in 2017. Returns to investors are projected at 5% per year.

Local energy storage and supply project.

This innovative project, called Gower Power Solar Storage, is the first of it’s kind in Wales providing local people with a chance to buy locally produced renewable energy over the local grid. When you sign up for our electricity tariff you can rest assured that all the profits of the scheme will stay in the local area. As well as 100% clean electricity you’ll also get excellent customer service that you won’t have to pay a premium for. Any energy that you need that we can’t produce from our solar farm and storage facility will be bought off other Welsh renewable energy providers.
