The Community Energy Network (CEN) Project

The Community Energy Network project hopes to reduce the energy bills of businesses and residents on Scilly through access to cheaper, locally generated electricity. On top of this, a deeper insight into energy usage could mean we can reduce the overall energy consumption of the islands. 

Solar CEN

We are planning on linking the Community Venture solar generation assets into the CEN and developing a roadmap for further development of local renewable energy as the CEN progresses.

Local Energy Tariff

A local energy tariff, which local electricity users can sign up to, will preferentially match them with the locally generated energy when available at a discount to their normal energy prices.

Smart Meters

An acceleration of the domestic smart meter rollout on the Islands will help people control their electricity bills and understand their overall energy consumption in detail.
