Would you be willing to support a local clean energy project?
Your voice will make a difference.

Climate emergency is now, it is happening, and we need change. From the Government’s Energy Security Strategy (published April 2022) to publications from the Climate Change Committee, they are all saying the same thing…

We need a diverse and flexible mix of energy solutions, generating cheaper, cleaner energy produced in the UK.

Eastbourne Borough Council's strategic declared a 'climate emergency’ in July 2019, and Suncoast Solar Farm could help the Council achieve its target to contribute towards lower energy bills for the community.

A poll, released in August 2023 shows, overall, 42% of people living near an existing, proposed, or under-construction solar farm strongly support developing the solar sector, compared to 1% who said they were strongly opposed. 

As many as 94% of respondents had either a supportive or neutral view of the sector, while the survey also found that solar farms had become more popular over time. 

However, support for solar drops to only 17% for people living near solar projects in the development phase, but once sites are in operation, support rises to 61.5%. 

There are plenty of reasons that public support for renewable energy has been climbing and with some pain during the development phase there is lots to gain in the years that follow. No matter your reasons for embracing renewable energy, you may wonder how you can show your support, here’s how.
