Matlock Community Energy Project

Matlock Town Council has been working with Derbyshire Dales Community Energy to develop clean energy projects that will help reduce the town’s carbon footprint and move towards a more sustainable future. 

The partnership was awarded a grant through the Rural Community Energy Fund, managed by the Midlands Energy Hub, which over the past 4 months has been used to explore the possibility of installing solar panels on key buildings in the town including Highfields School and Twiggs of Matlock.  Net zero charity Pure Leapfrog has now completed a feasibility study to see whether such projects are technical and financially viable. Their report has demonstrated that both sites are financially and technically viable.

Derbyshire Dales Community Energy (DDCE) has now been registered as a Benefit Society.
