The Benefits​

Community Energy is a growing sector in the UK, with hundreds of organisations like ours, tens of millions invested by ordinary people, and megawatts of renewable energy generated. ​​

Democratic local control

Our organisation is owned and controlled by its members. Local people can get involved in future developments.​ Every Member has one vote.

Local clean energy​​

Our solar PV installations provide cheaper electricity to the host organisations - which are charities or social enterprises.

Renewables revolution

Grimsby is growing as famous for its offshore wind industries as for food. We offer a way for local people to support the low carbon revolution in a community-centred way.

Our mission is

“To reduce energy costs and CO2 emissions by promoting local generation and harnessing, managing and supporting the funding of community renewable energy projects. To help our local community become aware of, involved in, and benefit from such projects.”
