What you need to know

We can help communities install low carbon or renewable technologies such as solar panels or heat pumps on community buildings, as well as with larger projects such as community wind turbines and hydro schemes. We also support communities who have been approached by commercial developers regarding community benefits packages, and communities interested in ownership of a renewable energy project.
