We are excited to explore the idea of developing renewable energy sources such as a wind turbine/solar field.  This is a very exciting opportunity to help us make our community more sustainable and tackle the climate crisis. It could also enable the residents to benefit from the income generated.

We are now looking to you, our local community, to see whether you wish to engage with this opportunity.  The turbine/solar field will be owned by shareholders through a share offer and will benefit the communities of Hook Norton and the surrounding villages.  Accordingly, as part of our community and stakeholder engagement, we would really value your views and your support.

This scheme could deliver lifetime CO2e savings of almost 100,000 tons, depending on the technology chosen.

We plan on running a series of online and in person events to give you the opportunity to ask questions, and give us suggestions plus you will be able to hear from and meet a community ‘Hockerton Housing’ who have successfully implemented community energy in their village. Our survey is now live to gain feedback from our community.

This is our community, our opportunity, our evolution. Click here to find out more

This could be our joint contribution to make a huge difference at both a local level, but one that impacts globally in reducing the carbon footprint on our home plane
