Ferry Farm Community Grant Fund

The Ferry Farm Community Solar Project now provides clean energy sufficient to power 1,300 homes.

It is situated at Ferry Farm because the Manhood Peninsula has the best sunshine record in the UK.

This innovative project is expected to produce up to £20,000 every year for a fund to support projects

and initiatives by local community and other groups under the general theme of 'The Environment'.

Selsey Community Forum is proud to administer this fund on behalf of the Ferry Farm

Community Solar Project. For more information, visit the Ferry Farm website.
