Fowey Renewable Energy Enterprise (FREE)


Fowey Renewable Energy Enterprise – known as FREE – was set up in 2010 to create community-owned renewable power for the benefit of the community.

The grant awarded by Energyfund Cornwall was used to complete business planning, governance and project development work to ensure FREE were investor ready and able to drawdown a loan from Cornwall Council’s Revolving Loan Fund.

The work, completed by Kabin and Community Energy Plus also included submitting pre-accreditation of sites with Ofgem along with grid connection applications and design to ensure they were in a position to proceed with their installation which led to the installation of 50kW of solar PV at Penhale Farm.
