Community Fund

The solar farm at Lower End Farm, through Good Energy, is providing £2,500 per year for use as a community fund for Worton.

About Good Energy

Good Energy was the first 100% renewable electricity supply company in the UK, supplying its customers with electricity from the sun, wind and rain.

The company owns and operates a number of wind and solar farms and is developing more sites to help meet growing demand for renewable electricity from domestic and business customers.

Good Energy offers community funds as one way of sharing the benefits of renewable energy with local people living close to its wind and solar farms.
