Jobs in renewable energy are rare enough but a job in community energy is something special – we’re advertising for somebody to come and help us develop community renewables projects, based at our office in Shrewsbury, on a 1 year full-time contract – for details and how to apply see our jobs page
We’ve heard from Malvern Community Energy Co-op, that their 30kW solar array at the Malvern Cube been installed and electricity is now being generated. This is a group that we supported to develop their project from conception, primarily through funding from the Co-operative Enterprise Hub (that is now unfortunately dormant). They are keen to thank everyone involved and celebrate. So you are invited to their ‘Grand Switch On’ Party. Refreshments and bubbly provided - so here’s to the ‘Grand Switch On’ and congratulations to the group for sticking with it and overcoming many hurdles!
It’s being held on Friday 26th September 6pm at the Malvern Cube, Albert Road North, Malvern, WR14 2YF
The group hopes this will be the first site of many for community energy in the Malvern area and are actively looking for more sites.

With the handover of the new Leominster primary school from the contractors to the Council now imminent, we are hopefully days away from being able to turn on the Sunrise Cooperative array. This news comes as we have our own good news on saving 100 tonnes of carbon dioxide (see post below). Leominster is blazing a trail for solar co-ops in the UK, setting a number of ‘firsts’, of which we are very proud.
The sooner we can get the Sunrise share offer complete, the sooner we can set to work on all the other ideas for solar co-ops in the town that are swirling around. Please do pass the word on that we only have £34,500 worth of shares remaining, as word of mouth is always the best way to find new members.
