We do it all, at no cost to you...

We have successfully funded and built 33 solar installations on schools and organisations in Plymouth, all owned by the community. This generates the equivalent clean energy to power 1,500 homes a year. Existing host organisations have benefitted from lower energy bills, saving in excess of £300,000 to date, all whilst giving back to the local community.
