WREN has achieved much in its first five years. It was set up to promote the benefits of a low carbon economy and through local ownership of local renewable energy generating capacity, to retain the benefits of energy generation in our community.

The Pengelly CE Wind Ltd Community Fund is again available for projects in St Breock and Wadebridge and this year there is £10,000 available for grants to not-for-profit organisations.

1st April saw the start of the ground breaking Sunshine Tariff in Wadebridge, North Cornwall. Customers pay a very low rate of 5p per unit of electricity between 10am and 4pm every day until 30th September 2016 for signed up customers, with a higher rate (18p) at other times of the day.

Wadebridge residents can now sign up for 5p daytime electricity through the radical new ‘Sunshine Tariff’ – a first for the UK.

North Cornwall residents can now sign up for lower electricity costs through the radical new ‘Sunshine Tariff’.
