About Us

Buy Our Electricity

We can’t and don't sell electricity direct to the public, but you can still indirectly support Westmill wind with your electricity purchases.

You can indirectly buy Westmill wind electricity.

We sell our electricity in two contracts, the output from 3 turbines is bought by Co-operative Energy, and 2 turbines by Tradelink Solutions/LOCO2.

Westmill Wind Farm Co-operative

 In the last five years over 7,000 people have visited our community owned windfarm at Westmill 
Guided Visits are organised by the Westmill Sustainable Energy Trust www.weset.org or contact wesetbookings@westmill.coop 

Find out about the difference community ownership makes. 


Westmill is a working organic farm. The Westmill Wind Farm Co-op was the first 100% community owned onshore wind farm to be built in the south-east of England.


The five turbine site at Watchfield was commissioned in March 2008. Over the last five years these turbines have generated over 90GWh (90,000,000kWh). Each year the wind farm produces more green electricity than is used by 2,500 homes whilst avoiding 5,000 tonnes of CO2.


In October 2012 a community-owned solar-farm was created on the same site. Details of Westmill Solar Co-op are here.  

Westmill Wind-farm Co-op is a member of the Energy4All family of co-operatives.


Westmill Sustainable Energy Trust

Westmill Sustainable Energy Trust (WeSET) is the charity set up by members of both Westmill Wind and Solar Cooperatives to spread the benefits of Westmill to the wider community.  We carry out a wide range of activities, the core being educational work, local energy conservation and renewable energy initiatives and arts projects.  As well as arranging guided tours of the site, once every two years WeSET organise a large event to promote community energy to the general public. Our hope is to encourage others to set up similar community owned renewable schemes.
