PV panels fitted to the South Brent Recreation Ground Pavilion, June 28th, by The Good Heat Company. First electricity generated on 30th June. (The assymetric layout is to minimise the effect of shadows from the lamp posts).

The Society's Vestas V27 wind turbine was funded by a community share issue and installed in August 2013. The 9.88kW PV system was installed in June 2014.

In November 2013 SBCES was Highly Commended at the RegenSW Green Energy Awards in the Best Community Project category.
