Hockerton Housing Project: bringing sustainability to life
Following the example of Hockerton's community wind turbine, which we project manage, residents of Gamlingay in Cambridgeshire have installed a single 33m diameter wind turbine just outside their village.

This is a local project delivered by the community, for the community, that will significantly offset the village’s carbon footprint. Part of the net income will be used to provide a regular income to the village, as our own SHOCK turbine does, to be spent on local charities and community projects.

We are particularly delighted to see their success as Gamlingay residents attended one of Hockerton Housing Project's renewable energy masterclasses as part of their initial investigations, and used us as a model of how to deliver a community energy project.

If you are part of a community group looking to deliver a sizeable community renewable energy project in a rural area we would be pleased to assist with your feasibility study, using the support of the Rural Community Energy Fund, or sign up for our next renewable energy masterclass.
