Exciting news for the Bridport Cohousing development as they confirm their 53 homes and Common House will be powered by the largest community microgrid of Photovoltaic panels in the UK

Bridport Cohousing is a groundbreaking sustainable development, providing community living for local people. As the build nears completion, the developers have confirmed that the homes and shared common house will all be powered by the largest community microgrid of Photovoltaic panels in the UK developed by pioneering energy firm CEPRO and supported by Low Carbon Dorset with ERDF funding.

This will help to make the housing project zero carbon in use and strengthens their commitment to sustainable, low carbon practices that will include electric car chargers and bike-sharing. Bridport Cohousing has set itself the aim of reducing the community's carbon footprint by 40% in the first 5 years.

Lisa Ashford, CEO of Ethex commented:
"We were really excited to learn the news about Bridport's microgrid, which means the project will not only work to encourage a new model of community and shared living but will create a real positive environmental impact. We're sure the Ethex investor base will also welcome this news and it sets Bridport apart as pioneers of sustainable living."

The Bridport Cohousing community share offer is currently live on Ethex, aiming to raise £382,000 to help them complete the construction of the common house and guest rooms. They have already raised over £200,000 and the offer benefits from £30,000 match-funding from Postcode Innovation Trust, meaning every pound invested will have double the impact.
