is an innovative social enterprise that enables local people to take ownership of renewable energy projects.
As a community-owned coop, we want to benefit the city, its people and the environment. One element of this is sharing the financial benefits between shareholders, a fund for community projects and investment in further energy projects.
We now have have four rooftop solar installations in place at Shillingford Organics, Wonford Community and Learning Centre, Exeter Central Library and Great Moor House. These installations are the start we hope, with investment already in place to install panels on 5 more rooftops and further projects planned into the future.
This is just the first step. Community energy projects are making a difference across the country, strengthening communities, helping the local economy and reconnecting people to the energy they use, as they became producers as well as consumers.
Our aim is to bring together people who are interested in building a sustainable future for our community, who care about climate change and the depletion of resources, and who want to reduce fuel bills, promote energy efficiency and address fuel poverty.
We can work together to learn and change the way we produce, use and think about energy, and in doing so create a more sustainable, resilient and prosperous community.
