Always been something you've wanted to do but never enough time? We can make it easy and benefit the community.Read More
Its easy to do things the way they have always been done but major savings can be made from investing in renewable energy or making small changes to your operations.
You'll also be helping our collective transition to a zero carbon energy system!
Hosting a community-owned solar array on its roof, this local primary school benefits from management-free solar, low cost energy and a fantastic education tool for students.
“For us now leading the way as a school has made a huge impact, the Eco Team were very excited when the solar panels were put in place.”
The children are able to monitor how much energy their roof is generating, see the impacts of varying weather conditions and see how much carbon they have saved, plus their local community own it!
We worked with Schneider to provide care and support on energy issues for their staff. Our advisors visited the factory to hold drop in sessions for anyone concerned with their bills or interested grants and tips to stay warm and well at home.
In return, Schneider donated free heating programmers and TRVs to us, so our Energy team could install them into the homes of people in fuel poverty.
Plymouth's largest housing provider regularly invite us to provide training for staff and drop in stalls at tenants events. PCH staff have become PEC Pals.
In addition, we have collaborated on retrofit schemes, they are organisation investor members of PEC Renewables and they have a representative on our PEC Renewables Board. We promote their windows manufacturing services to other residents as well.
When our pals at fellow social enterprise Nudge said that they were going to take over a derelict pub, do it up, make it into a community hub and affordable flats, we jumped at the chance to support them!
We helped with energy efficiency advice and supported them to launch their first community share offer. Now we regularly host events at Union Street's vibrant Clipper and regularly collaborate on different projects.
