We have done it! We have defied the odds to build Plymouth’s largest solar array, generating enough clean energy to meet the annual needs of 1000 homes and long-term funds for local economic development, fuel poverty and climate change projects. Now we are offering you the opportunity to help us raise £1,230,000 by buying community shares. A short-term construction loan allowed us to build the array in advance of the looming cuts to subsidies and our 16,000 solar panels started generating electricity on 23 March 2016. Now we need to replace that short-term loan with a combination of community shares and a long-term loan with Plymouth City Council.

Our vision is not only to generate renewable energy right here in London but to ensure that this new form of energy production is owned and governed by the people who use it. Invest in SELCE’s second solar share offer. South East London Community Energy launched its second community share offer on 1st July 2016. Although there has been a lot of media coverage about the reduction in subsidies for solar energy, the changes will not affect our second project. This is because SELCE was able to ‘pre-register’ the solar installations (more details can be found in our share offer prospectus).

Co-own turbines in Wales & Scotland, & use the energy yourself at home. Get interest at 4.5-6.5% & support small farms & rural communities. Community energy has really taken off in the UK over the last few years, giving people the opportunity to directly own green energy generation and bypass the big energy companies, while supporting local communities. The Small Wind Co-op is a new co-operative set up by the team at Sharenergy – one of the UK’s foremost community energy organisations with over 30 successful projects under our belts, from Somerset to Shetland. We’re building on that success, offering you the chance to co-own 3 wind turbines as part of a democratic, ethical organisation. You get a decent return on your investment (from 4.5% to 6.5%) and even the chance to use the electricity we generate in your own home.
