SHARE OFFER NOW CLOSED

Invest in Clean, Community-Owned Energy

We’re delighted to announce that our seventh community share offer has reached its £2million target, and the offer has now closed.

Raising these funds means we’re now able to steam ahead with some very exciting projects, including our Bristol hydro-electric scheme, the UK’s first domestic housing micro-grid with battery storage, and rooftop solar.

We’re very grateful to the 800 or so investors who’ve made this raise possible. It’s thrilling to welcome so many new members. Many thanks also to Ethex who have provided so much support to us.

This successful raise comes as we mark 10 years since the founding of Bristol Energy Co-op, a decade in which we’ve raised over £14million, installed over 9MWp of solar and battery assets, and facilitated over £250,000 of community benefit payments. Our renewable energy portfolio already provides enough electricity to power the equivalent of 3000 average homes, a figure now set to increase as our new projects come online.

We also have some exciting new plans in the pipeline which we look forward to sharing over the coming months.
