The Bath & West Community Energy (BWCE) Fund is open for applications with a deadline of 12pm on 4th November 2022.

  • Bath & West Community Energy (BWCE) is a community business that generates renewable energy, owned by the local community to provide community benefit.
  • We generate and sell electricity from solar power on rooftops (e.g. schools & businesses) and solar farms.
  • Surplus income from this solar generation is donated to the BWCE Fund (set up as a charity).

The BWCE Fund supports local community projects that target the reduction of carbon emissions and/or fuel poverty.

The area of benefit covers Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES), parts of Wiltshire and South Gloucestershire that border B&NES (see MAP) plus the area of Somerset close to our Crewkerne solar array at TA18 7NX. (community groups in the parish area can apply)
