Community Action for our Energy Future

Total energy produced by our projects so far: 

1,160,536 kWh


The EON biomass plant at Blackburn Meadows, has produced its first power, turning waste wood into electricity.   It sychronised with the local distribution network for the first time last Tuesday, June 24th.   It was built at a cost of £120 million and should provide enough energy to power around 40,000 homes, reducing carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to taking more than 20,000 cars off the roads.  It will also supply hot water to a £20 million low-carbon district heating network for homes and business which is due to be completed early next year.
