At Plymouth Energy Community, we empower our community to create a fair, affordable, zero carbon energy system with local people at its heart.
We are a charity and a social enterprise, with a cooperative ethos. Our family of organisations enables community members to take leadership on local solutions to the climate emergency and the energy transition.
We give local people ownership in positive solutions like clean renewable energy generation and zero carbon, affordable homes. We provide free energy advice for anyone struggling with their bills.
