The Ivybridge area now has its very own community energy society, South Dartmoor Community Energy (SDCE), which was officially registered with the Financial Conduct Authority on the 8th June 2016. The society has evolved out of the PL:21 energy group and is a community benefit society, with 7 volunteer Directors. (www.southdartmoorcommunityenergy.org)
SDCE aims to help local people reduce their fuel bills through energy efficiency advice and initiatives and to develop renewable energy projects to reduce the local carbon footprint and fund further community projects.
