Who we are

Dragonfly Power are a community energy group who were formed by a group of residents from Transition Town Romsey. We are now working across the whole of Test Valley. Our main aims are:

  • Generate Renewable Energy - To increase the uptake and development of a portfolio of renewable energy projects in Test Valley, working with schools, businesses and other community organisation and facilities.
  • Home Energy Advice Team (HEAT) - To manage and deliver an energy advice programme for households, communities and organisations in Test Valley. Including: giving talks and workshops at events and to community groups on home energy efficiency and providing home energy surveys with thermal imaging (subject to suitable weather conditions).
  • To work with communities, supporting the decarbonisation of community buildings or other assets in Test Valley and by assisting them with writing funding bids for the installation of energy efficiency and low carbon technologies.

How does it work?

  • Dragonfly Power will work with the owner of a suitable site to install renewable energy equipment such as rooftop solar panels
  • Installation costs are funded by Dragonfly Power
  • The building user will benefit from cheaper electricity generated on site through a Power Purchase Agreement with Dragonfly Power
  • Dragonfly Power will own, maintain and manage the equipment
  • The cost of the works will be raised by a local share offer by Dragonfly Power and the income from electricity sales will pay off investors
  • Shareholders get a competitive return on their investment
  • Surplus money will be used to benefit the community

We are also keen to partner with other groups in delivery of energy efficiency advice and initiatives to tackle fuel poverty in the local community.
