People and organisations in Weston and Burnham will be able to get advice on their energy and how to manage it.

Burnham and Weston Energy CIC will host drop-in events to offer help and support on energy and fuel poverty for households and businesses.

It owns one of the largest community solar arrays in the UK at Wick Farm near Burnham, which houses nearly 36,000 solar panels.

It expects to generate around £3million in surplus income until 2043, with £50,000 per year available for nearby energy schemes.

MORE: Millions of pounds to be distributed by solar power farm for the next 25 years.

Director Jake Burnyeat said: “Our systems will make energy production an asset for the community.”

Events will be held in each town, the first in Weston at The Hive, in Beaufighter Road, on June 11 from 3pm-6pm, and the Burnham drop-in will take place at The Princess Theatre, in Princess Street, on June 12 from noon to 3pm.
