Big Solar Co-op

The Big Solar Co-op is our flagship solar project. Wherever you are in the UK we can help you to get co-operatively owned solar going in your region. We offer training for volunteers to learn how to find, assess and sign up new solar sites.

By 2025 we aim to:

  • Install 100MW of rooftop solar. Each year this will save nearly 40,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions and produce enough electricity to drive over 250 million miles by electric car.
  • Engage 250 active volunteers across 25 local groups.
  • Create 5 new sustainable jobs.
  • Create ethical, accessible social investment opportunities raising £25m.
  • Save over £300,000 annually on fuel bills for community buildings and social housing.
