Yealm Community Energy Ltd (YCE) is a Community Benefit Society, set up in order to provide improved energy services to the residents of the parishes bordering the Yealm estuary – Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo, Holbeton, Yealmpton, Brixton and Wembury.  Households in the area have been spending around £7 million per year to outside suppliers for electricity and gas, representing about 5% of earned income.  This money leaves the local economy, and benefits large energy companies. There is considerable scope to reduce this financial outflow and to retain economic benefits within the community.
