There are a few things you’ll need to take your project forward.

  • A mandate from your organisation’s members to investigate energy options.
  • One or more buildings with an appropriate roof or adjacent ground space.
  • A sound roof structure and roof finish, or accessible but secure level ground.
  • An appropriate energy demand during daylight hours and in all seasons. You may also want to consider adding battery storage.
  • Full ownership of the building or a long lease.
  • Responsibility for paying the electricity bills.
  • A person with responsibility for, and capacity to, administer the project.
  • An ability to fundraise or otherwise secure capital funding.
