Applicants must be planning a renewable energy project which provides defined benefits to the community where the renewable energy installation is based.

We are looking for businesses to site the renewable energy on their property assets, for example roof space, or land for ground mounted solar arrays.

Who is it for?

If your business is in a rural or semi-rural area and you would like to add solar panels to your building or land, please get in touch.

How does it work?

The community raises the investment for the renewable energy project and leases the space from the business. The businesses gets discounted rate electricity, the opportunity to decarbonise their property at no cost to themselves and to engage with their local community in a mutually beneficial relationship.

Additional information? – this is a project where the community leased and invested in a large solar array with the assistance of a developer. – Marks and Spencer have used community investment to fund solar on 8 of their stores.
