Our biggest rooftop solar array yet

In Autumn this year we installed what’s believed to be the UK’s largest community-owned solar rooftop. The 1MW array covers the new filming studio facilities run by The Bottle Yard Studios, who are best known for TV productions including The Outlaws, Chloe and Show Trial.


How much electricity do our solar projects generate?

Community energy is all about putting people at the heart of energy. Our investor members help us build clean energy projects, and revenues are reinvested back into local community initiatives.

Over 1500 investor members have joined our coop already. They are using their investments to make positive, measurable impact for the environment. Find out how you can join.


As a not-for-profit, we put our revenues to good use

Since 2011, we have channelled over £350,000 to community benefit initiatives.


Our projects are generating enough energy to power 3000 homes each year

We’re involved in solar rooftops, solar farms, battery storage and microgrids.
