Freeland Energy Group

In 2023 a small group of residents, united by the desire to tackle climate change, got together to form Freeland Energy Group, to encourage energy reduction and increase renewable energy generation in the Freeland area of West Oxfordshire.

The group were originally part of an initiative begun by Freeland Parish Council, called Resilient Freeland that considered all aspects of climate change, including nature recovery, energy efficiency, recycling and transport.  

Freeland Energy Group are an important part of the Community Action Plan for Zero Carbon Energy CAPZero, which aims to implement the first local energy action plan at a community level, in the Cuckoo Lane Primary Substation Area (PSA). Freeland is one of eight parishes that make up the PSA but is the only Parish to lie entirely within the area.
