Salisbury Community Energy (SCE) is a local not-for-profit community benefit society that was set-up in 2017 to help Salisbury decarbonise and manage the threats posed by climate change.
It has just completed, with its partners Schools Energy Cooperative, five solar PV installations across Salisbury totalling 205kW of capacity that will reduce Salisbury’s emissions by 97 tonnes.
In July 2020, the fifth installation was completed, which is none other than Salisbury Cathedral!
“The Church of England is working hard towards a Net Zero carbon footprint by 2030. As the Church of England’s lead bishop for the environment I am delighted that Salisbury cathedral is making a contribution that takes us towards this. With clear purpose and helpful partnerships even an iconic buildings can make a difference towards sustainability. In these strange times the possibilities of living differently seem all the more important and this project even more significant.”
The Right Reverend Nicholas Holtam, Bishop of Salisbury
